Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS : openssl update (USN-2913-3)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-2913-1 removed 1024-bit RSA CA certificates from the
ca-certificates package. This update adds support for alternate
certificate chains to the OpenSSL package to properly handle the
removal.

The ca-certificates package contained outdated CA certificates. This
update refreshes the included certificates to those contained in the
20160104 package, including the removal of the SPI CA and CA
certificates with 1024-bit RSA keys.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected libssl1.0.0 package.

Risk factor :

High
