New openssl packages are available for Slackware 14.2 to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/openssl-1.0.2r-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded. Go into the error state if a fatal alert is sent or received. If an application calls SSL_shutdown after a fatal alert has occured and then behaves different based on error codes from that function then the application may be vulnerable to a padding oracle. For more information, see: ( Security fix ) patches/packages/openssl-solibs-1.0.2r-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
