SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionDaniel Bleichenbacher discovered a flaw in the OpenSSL cryptographic package that could allow an attacker to generate a forged signature that OpenSSL will accept as valid.
SolutionUpgrade the openssl packages. Note that services linking against the openssl shared libraries will need to be restarted. Common examples of such services include most Mail Transport Agents, SSH servers, and web servers.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.6m-1sarge2.
This package exists only for compatibility with older software, and is not present in the unstable or testing branches of Debian.
