    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2013-0166
    
        OpenSSL does not properly perform signature verification for OCSP
        responses, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
        service via an invalid key.
    
    CVE-2013-0169
    
        A timing side channel attack has been found in CBC padding
        allowing an attacker to recover pieces of plaintext via statistical
        analysis of crafted packages, known as the "Lucky Thirteen" issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.8o-4squeeze14.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1e-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
