    [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:
