New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

OpenSSL Team reports :

Two security flaws have been fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.0e

Under certain circumstances OpenSSL's internal certificate verification routines can incorrectly accept a CRL whose nextUpdate field is in the past. (CVE-2011-3207)

OpenSSL server code for ephemeral ECDH ciphersuites is not thread-safe, and furthermore can crash if a client violates the protocol by sending handshake messages in incorrect order.


Update the affected packages.
