New ruby packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ruby-1.9.3_p448-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update patches a vulnerability in Ruby's SSL client that could allow
  man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a valid certificate
  issued by a trusted certification authority.
