    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2012-0884
    
    	Ivan Nestlerode discovered a weakness in the CMS and PKCS #7
    	implementations that could allow an attacker to decrypt data
    	via a Million Message Attack (MMA).
    
    CVE-2012-1165
    
    	It was discovered that a NULL pointer could be dereferenced
    	when parsing certain S/MIME messages, leading to denial of
    	service.
    
    CVE-2012-2110
    
    	Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team, discovered a vulnerability
    	in the way DER-encoded ASN.1 data is parsed that can result in
    	a heap overflow.
    
    
    Additionally, the fix for CVE-2011-4619 has been updated to address an
    issue with SGC handshakes.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.8o-4squeeze11.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1a-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
