Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL allowing remote
attackers to determine private keys or cause a Denial of Service.

Background
==========

OpenSSL is an Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) as well as a general
purpose cryptography library.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-libs/openssl             < 1.0.0i                 *>= 0.9.8y
                                                           *>= 1.0.0j
  2  dev-libs/openssl             < 0.9.8y                 Vulnerable!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
           to another package if one is available or wait for the
           existing packages to be marked stable by their
           architecture maintainers.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSL. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

Remote attackers can determine private keys, decrypt data, cause a
Denial of Service or possibly have other unspecified impact.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSL 1.0.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.0j"

All OpenSSL 0.9.8 users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/openssl-0.9.8y"
