    Vulnerability  : CA trust revocation
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Several weak certificates were issued by Malaysian intermediate CA 
    "Digicert Sdn. Bhd." This event, along with other issues, has lead to
    Entrust Inc. and Verizon Cybertrust to revoke the CA's cross-signed
    certificates.
    
    This update to OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit, reflects this
    decision by marking Digicert Sdn. Bhd.'s certificates as revoked.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.8g-15+lenny14.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.8o-4squeeze4.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.0e-2.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
