[slackware-security]  wpa_supplicant (SSA:2022-019-01)

New wpa_supplicant packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/wpa_supplicant-2.9-i586-2_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update contains patches for these security issues:
  The implementations of EAP-pwd in hostapd before 2.10 and wpa_supplicant
  before 2.10 are vulnerable to side-channel attacks as a result of cache
  access patterns.
  NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2019-9495.
  For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-23303
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-23304
  (* Security fix *)
