[slackware-security] Slackware 14.2 openssl (SSA:2022-179-03)

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-1.0.2u-i586-4_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.
We're sending out the Slackware 14.2 updates again because the package
build number wasn't incremented which caused slackpkg to not pick up the
updates. It's been bumped and the packages rebuilt - otherwise there are
no new changes. Thanks to John Jenkins for the report.
For reference, here's the information from the previous advisory:
In addition to the c_rehash shell command injection identified in
CVE-2022-1292, further circumstances where the c_rehash script does not
properly sanitise shell metacharacters to prevent command injection were
found by code review.
When the CVE-2022-1292 was fixed it was not discovered that there
are other places in the script where the file names of certificates
being hashed were possibly passed to a command executed through the shell.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/openssl-solibs-1.0.2u-i586-4_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.
