[slackware-security]  OpenSSL security update (SSA:2004-077-01)

Upgraded OpenSSL packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
9.1, and -current.  These fix two potential denial-of-service
issues in earlier versions of OpenSSL.

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