[slackware-security] irssi (SSA:2016-265-03)

New irssi packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
14.2, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/irssi-0.8.20-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes two remote crash and heap corruption vulnerabilites
in Irssi's format parsing code. Impact: Remote crash and heap
corruption. Remote code execution seems difficult since only Nuls are
written. Bugs discovered by, and patches provided by Gabriel Campana
and Adrien Guinet from Quarkslab.
