Fedora 14 : openssl-1.0.0e-1.fc14 (2011-12281)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56156


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


New upstream release fixing CVE-2011-3207 and a few other minor bugs.

It also improves performance of AES, SHA1 and RC4 on new Intel CPUs and enables VIA Padlock HW acceleration support on 64 bit architecture.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected openssl package.
