[slackware-security]  openssl (SSA:2022-076-02)

New openssl packages are available for Slackware 14.2, 15.0, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/openssl-1.1.1n-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a high severity security issue:
  The BN_mod_sqrt() function, which computes a modular square root, contains
  a bug that can cause it to loop forever for non-prime moduli.
  For more information, see:

    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-0778
