Package        : openssh
Vulnerability  : Wrong libSSL
Debian-specific: yes

A former security upload of OpenSSH was linked against the wrong
version of libssl (providing an API to SSL), that version was not
available on sparc.  This ought to fix a former upload that lacked
support for PAM which lead into people not being able to log in into
their server.  This was only a problem on the sparc architecture.

We recommend you upgrade your ssh packages on sparc.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
