[slackware-security]  new mod_ssl packages (SSA:2004-207-02)

New mod_ssl packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0
and -current to fix a security issue.  A format string vulnerability in
mod_proxy hook functions could allow an attacker to run code as the mod_ssl
user.  Sites using mod_ssl should upgrade (be sure to back up your existing
key files first).

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Sun Jul 25 14:17:29 PDT 2004
patches/packages/mod_ssl-2.8.19_1.3.31-i486-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to mod_ssl-2.8.19-1.3.31.
  This fixes a security hole (ssl_log() related format string
  vulnerability in mod_proxy hook functions), so sites using mod_ssl
  should upgrade to the new version.  Be sure to back up your existing
  key files first.
  (* Security fix *)
