    It was discovered that the original patch applied for CVE-2016-2182 in
    DSA-3673-1 was incomplete, causing a regression when parsing
    certificates. Updated packages are now available to address this
    problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.1t-1+deb8u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
