    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets
    Layer toolkit.
    
    CVE-2014-8176
    
        Praveen Kariyanahalli, Ivan Fratric and Felix Groebert discovered
        that an invalid memory free could be triggered when buffering DTLS
        data. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
        (crash) or potentially execute arbitrary code. This issue only
        affected the oldstable distribution (wheezy).
    
    CVE-2015-1788
    
        Joseph Barr-Pixton discovered that an infinite loop could be triggered
        due to incorrect handling of malformed ECParameters structures. This
        could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-1789
    
        Robert Swiecki and Hanno Böck discovered that the X509_cmp_time
        function could read a few bytes out of bounds. This could allow remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted
        certificates and CRLs.
    
    CVE-2015-1790
    
        Michal Zalewski discovered that the PKCS#7 parsing code did not
        properly handle missing content which could lead to a NULL pointer
        dereference. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
        service (crash) via crafted ASN.1-encoded PKCS#7 blobs.
    
    CVE-2015-1791
    
        Emilia Käsper discovered that a race condition could occur due to
        incorrect handling of NewSessionTicket in a multi-threaded client,
        leading to a double free. This could allow remote attackers to cause
        a denial of service (crash).
    
    CVE-2015-1792
    
        Johannes Bauer discovered that the CMS code could enter an infinite
        loop when verifying a signedData message, if presented with an
        unknown hash function OID. This could allow remote attackers to cause
        a denial of service.
    
    Additionally OpenSSL will now reject handshakes using DH parameters
    shorter than 768 bits as a countermeasure against the Logjam attack
    (CVE-2015-4000).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u17.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1k-3+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.0.2b-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.2b-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
