[slackware-security] openssh (SSA:2023-075-02)

New openssh packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/openssh-9.3p1-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This release contains fixes for a security problem and a memory
safety problem. The memory safety problem is not believed to be
exploitable, but we report most network-reachable memory faults as
security bugs.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
