New openssl packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/openssl-solibs-1.0.1j-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. ( Security fix ) patches/packages/openssl-1.0.1j-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. This update fixes several security issues: SRTP Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3513): A flaw in the DTLS SRTP extension parsing code allows an attacker, who sends a carefully crafted handshake message, to cause OpenSSL to fail to free up to 64k of memory causing a memory leak. This could be exploited in a Denial Of Service attack. Session Ticket Memory Leak (CVE-2014-3567): When an OpenSSL SSL/TLS/DTLS server receives a session ticket the integrity of that ticket is first verified. In the event of a session ticket integrity check failing, OpenSSL will fail to free memory causing a memory leak. By sending a large number of invalid session tickets an attacker could exploit this issue in a Denial Of Service attack. SSL 3.0 Fallback protection: OpenSSL has added support for TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV to allow applications to block the ability for a MITM attacker to force a protocol downgrade. Some client applications (such as browsers) will reconnect using a downgraded protocol to work around interoperability bugs in older servers. This could be exploited by an active man-in-the-middle to downgrade connections to SSL 3.0 even if both sides of the connection support higher protocols. SSL 3.0 contains a number of weaknesses including POODLE (CVE-2014-3566). Build option no-ssl3 is incomplete (CVE-2014-3568): When OpenSSL is configured with "no-ssl3" as a build option, servers could accept and complete a SSL 3.0 handshake, and clients could be configured to send them. For more information, see: ( Security fix )
