[slackware-security] python3 (SSA:2022-250-01)

New python3 packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to fix
a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/python3-3.9.14-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This is a security and bugfix release.
gh-95778: Converting between int and str in bases other than 2 (binary), 4,
8 (octal), 16 (hexadecimal), or 32 such as base 10 (decimal) now raises a
ValueError if the number of digits in string form is above a limit to avoid
potential denial of service attacks due to the algorithmic complexity.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
