    The openssl update issued as DSA 3197-1 caused regressions. This update
    reverts the defective patch applied in that update causing these
    problems. Additionally a follow-up fix for CVE-2015-0209 is applied.
    For reference the original advisory text follows.
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure
    Sockets Layer toolkit. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2015-0286
    
        Stephen Henson discovered that the ASN1_TYPE_cmp() function
        can be crashed, resulting in denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-0287
    
        Emilia Kaesper discovered a memory corruption in ASN.1 parsing.
    
    CVE-2015-0289
    
        Michal Zalewski discovered a NULL pointer dereference in the
        PKCS#7 parsing code, resulting in denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-0292
    
        It was discovered that missing input sanitising in base64 decoding
        might result in memory corruption.
    
    CVE-2015-0209
    
        It was discovered that a malformed EC private key might result in
        memory corruption.
    
    CVE-2015-0288
    
        It was discovered that missing input sanitising in the
        X509_to_X509_REQ() function might result in denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u16.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
