Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It was discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled the SSL_OP_ALL
setting. This resulted in TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 being inadvertently
disabled for certain server and client applications.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected libssl1.0.0 package.

High
