[slackware-security]  openvpn (SSA:2018-116-01)

New openvpn packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
14.2, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/openvpn-2.4.6-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This is a security update fixing a potential double-free() in Interactive
  Service. This usually only leads to a process crash (DoS by an unprivileged
  local account) but since it could possibly lead to memory corruption if
  happening while multiple other threads are active at the same time,
  CVE-2018-9336 has been assigned to acknowledge this risk.
  For more information, see:
    https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/commit/1394192b210cb3c6624a7419bcf3ff966742e79b
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-9336
  (* Security fix *)
