Forthcoming OpenSSL releases

Mattias Geniar, Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Let's hope this isn't as bad as it sounds.

Forthcoming OpenSSL releases

The OpenSSL project team would like to announce the forthcoming release
of OpenSSL versions 1.0.2a, 1.0.1m, 1.0.0r and 0.9.8zf.

These releases will be made available on 19th March. They will fix a
number of security defects. The highest severity defect fixed by these
releases is classified as "high" severity.


The OpenSSL Project Team

The good news is, OpenSSL isn't dead. The bad news is, we may have a new heartbleed on our hands.

According to this post [1], the ‘high’ security vuln affects 1.0.2 only. And according to this post [2], it might be a DoS vuln.
