New openssl packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/openssl-1.0.1h-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Multiple security issues have been corrected, including a possible
  man-in-the-middle attack where weak keying material is forced, denial
  of service, and the execution of arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/openssl-solibs-1.0.1h-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
