    Multiple security issues have been fixed in OpenSSL: The TLS 1.2 support
    was susceptible to denial of service and retransmission of DTLS messages
    was fixed. In addition this updates disables the insecure Dual_EC_DRBG
    algorithm (which was unused anyway, see 
    http://marc.info/?l=openssl-announce&m=138747119822324&w=2 for further
    information) and no longer uses the RdRand feature available on some
    Intel CPUs as a sole source of entropy unless explicitly requested.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1e-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
