[slackware-security]  OpenSSL (SSA:2005-286-01)

New OpenSSL packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue.  Under certain conditions, an
attacker acting as a "man in the middle" may force a client and server to
fall back to the less-secure SSL 2.0 protocol.

More details about this issue may be found here:

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/openssl-0.9.7g-i486-2.tgz:  Patched.
  Fixed a vulnerability that could, in rare circumstances, allow an attacker
  acting as a "man in the middle" to force a client and a server to negotiate
  the SSL 2.0 protocol (which is known to be weak) even if these parties both
  support SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0.
  For more details, see:
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/openssl-solibs-0.9.7g-i486-2.tgz:  Patched.
