    Package        : openssl096
    Vulnerability  : cryptographic weakness
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2969
    Yutaka Oiwa discovered a vulnerability in the Open Secure Socket Layer
    (OpenSSL) library that can allow an attacker to perform active
    protocol-version rollback attacks that could lead to the use of the
    weaker SSL 2.0 protocol even though both ends support SSL 3.0 or TLS
    The following matrix explains which version in which distribution has
    this problem corrected.
                    oldstable (woody)      stable (sarge)     unstable (sid)
    openssl          0.9.6c-2.woody.8       0.9.7e-3sarge1      0.9.8-3
    openssl 094      0.9.4-6.woody.4             n/a              n/a

    We recommend that you upgrade your libssl packages.
