[slackware-security] sudo (SSA:2023-018-01)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, 15.0,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/sudo-1.9.12p2-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a flaw in sudo's -e option (aka sudoedit) that could allow
a malicious user with sudoedit privileges to edit arbitrary files.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
