   An update that solves 9 vulnerabilities and has one errata
   is now available.


   This OpenSSL update fixes the following security issues:

       * SSL/TLS man-in-the-middle vulnerability. (CVE-2014-0224)
       * DTLS recursion flaw. (CVE-2014-0221)
       * Anonymous ECDH denial of service. (CVE-2014-3470)
       * Using the FLUSH+RELOAD Cache Side-channel Attack the nonces could
         have been recovered. (CVE-2014-0076)
       * Information leak in pretty printing functions. (CVE-2014-3508)
       * Double Free when processing DTLS packets. (CVE-2014-3505)
       * DTLS memory exhaustion. (CVE-2014-3506)
       * DTLS memory leak from zero-length fragments. (CVE-2014-3507)
       * DTLS anonymous EC(DH) denial of service. (CVE-2014-3510)

   Further information about these vulnerabilities can be found at
   <> and
   <> .

   Additionally, the following non-security fixes and enhancements have been
   included in this release:

       * Ensure that the stack is marked non-executable on x86 32bit. On
         other processor platforms it was already marked as non-executable
         before. (bnc#870192)
       * IPv6 support was added to the openssl s_client and s_server command
         line tool. (bnc#859228)
       * The openssl command line tool now checks certificates by default
         against /etc/ssl/certs (this can be changed via the -CApath option).
       * The Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman key exchange selector was enabled
         and can be selected by kECDHE, kECDH, ECDH tags in the SSL cipher
         string. (bnc#859924)
       * If an optional openssl1 command line tool is installed in parallel,
         c_rehash uses it to generate certificate hashes in both OpenSSL 0
         and OpenSSL 1 style. This allows parallel usage of OpenSSL 0.9.8j
         and OpenSSL 1.x client libraries with a shared certificate store.

   Security Issues:

       * CVE-2014-3508
       * CVE-2014-3505
       * CVE-2014-3506
