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