security issues and bugs :

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2014-0224: Fix for SSL/TLS MITM flaw. An attacker
using a carefully crafted handshake can force the use of
weak keying material in OpenSSL SSL/TLS clients and
servers.

invalid DTLS handshake to an OpenSSL DTLS client the
code can be made to recurse eventually crashing in a DoS
attack.

- CVE-2014-0195: Fix DTLS invalid fragment vulnerability.
A buffer overrun attack can be triggered by sending
invalid DTLS fragments to an OpenSSL DTLS client or
server. This is potentially exploitable to run arbitrary
code on a vulnerable client or server.
