    Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in OpenSSL, a Secure
    Sockets Layer toolkit, that may result in denial of service
    (application crash, large memory consumption), information leak,
    protocol downgrade. Additionally, a buffer overrun affecting only
    applications explicitly set up for SRP has been fixed (CVE-2014-3512).
    
    Detailed descriptions of the vulnerabilities can be found at:

    It's important that you upgrade the libssl1.0.0 package and not just
    the openssl package.
    
    All applications linked to openssl need to be restarted. You can use
    the "checkrestart" tool from the debian-goodies package to detect
    affected programs. Alternatively, you may reboot your system.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u12.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed
    soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1i-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
