Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of openssl fixes two regressions.

- A regression was caused by the security fix for
CVE-2015-0287, where DSA keys were not correctly loaded
from file anymore. (bsc#937492)

- RSA key generation odd keylengths was entering an
endless loop (bsc#937212)

without introducing additional issues.
