    - Ubuntu 15.04
    - Ubuntu 14.10
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    The export cipher suites have been disabled in OpenSSL.
    
    Software Description:
    - openssl: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) cryptographic library and tools
    
    Details:
    
    As a security improvement, this update removes the export cipher suites
    from the default cipher list to prevent their use in possible downgrade
    attacks.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 15.04:
      libssl1.0.0                     1.0.1f-1ubuntu11.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.10:
      libssl1.0.0                     1.0.1f-1ubuntu9.5
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libssl1.0.0                     1.0.1f-1ubuntu2.12
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libssl1.0.0                     1.0.1-4ubuntu5.28
    
    After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
    all the necessary changes.
