[slackware-security]  openssl (SSA:2008-210-08)

New openssl packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and -current
to fix security issues.

More details about this issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0891
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1672

Upgraded OpenSSH packages have been provided to make sure that ssh is not
broken my the update -- especially if your machine is a remote one, be SURE
to upgrade to the new openssh package as well!


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/openssl-0.9.8h-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:
  Upgraded to OpenSSL 0.9.8h.
  The Codenomicon TLS test suite uncovered security bugs in OpenSSL.
  If OpenSSL was compiled using non-default options (Slackware's package
  is not), then a malicious packet could cause a crash.  Also, a malformed
  TLS handshake could also lead to a crash.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0891
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1672
  When upgrading OpenSSL, it is VERY IMPORTANT to also upgrade OpenSSH, or
  it is possible to be unable to log back into sshd!
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
