Debian DLA-33-1 : openssl security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82181
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Detailed descriptions of the vulnerabilities can be found at:
https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv/20140806.txt

It's important that you upgrade the libssl0.9.8 package and not just the openssl package.

All applications linked to openssl need to be restarted. You can use the 'checkrestart' tool from the debian-goodies package to detect affected programs. Alternatively, you may reboot your system.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
