[Slackware 14.1] OpenSSH security upgrade


I have the honor of reporting 14.1's first security vulnerability (I think I'm the first). OpenSSH 6.4p1 (sig) has been released to address a memory corruption vulnerability in sshd when using aes*-gcm@openssh.com ciphers (supported in Slackware 14.1). CVE-2013-4548 has been assigned to this issue.

PS Congrats on the release!
