[slackware-security]  OpenSSL security update (SSA:2003-273-01)

Upgraded OpenSSL packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
9.1, and -current.  These fix problems with ASN.1 parsing which
could lead to a denial of service.  It is not known whether the
problems could lead to the running of malicious code on the
server, but it has not been ruled out.

We recommend sites that use OpenSSL upgrade to the fixed packages
right away.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Tue Sep 30 16:16:35 PDT 2003
patches/packages/openssl-0.9.7c-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to OpenSSL 0.9.7c.
patches/packages/openssl-solibs-0.9.7c-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to OpenSSL 0.9.7c.
  This update fixes problems with OpenSSL's ASN.1 parsing which could lead to
  a denial of service.  It is not known whether the problems could lead to the
  running of malicious code on the server, but it has not been ruled out.
  For detailed information, see OpenSSL's security advisory:
    http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20030930.txt
  We recommend sites that use OpenSSL upgrade to the fixed packages right away.
  (* Security fix *)
