An update that solves one vulnerability and has two security fixes can now be
installed.

## Description:

This update for openssl-3 fixes the following issues:

  * CVE-2023-5678: Fixed generating and checking of excessively long X9.42 DH
    keys that resulted in a possible Denial of Service (bsc#1216922).

Bug fixes:

  * The default /etc/ssl/openssl3.cnf file will include any configuration files
    that other packages might place into /etc/ssl/engines3.d/ and
    /etc/ssl/engdef3.d/.
  * Create the two new necessary directores for the above. [bsc#1194187,
    bsc#1207472]
