Wow, that's bad. You can access the bolts that hold the hub onto the axle through a gap in the brake drum. You'll see them when you look for them :)

Smack 'em thru and put in new ones. You don't need to take the hub off - just slide the disk off the back and pull apart the handbrake shoes. No biggee. If 2 were broken I'd be inclined to change them all.
