    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    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.
    
    CVE-2013-1621
    
        An array index error might allow remote attackers to cause a denial
        of service via vectors involving a crafted padding-length value
        during validation of CBC padding in a TLS session
    
    CVE-2013-1622
    
        Malformed CBC data in a TLS session could allow remote attackers to
        conduct distinguishing attacks via statistical analysis of timing
        side-channel data for crafted packets.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.12.1-1squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the  unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.4-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your polarssl packages.
