Description Daniel Roesen 2001-04-26 02:02:34 EDT
- Security fix: change behavior of OpenSSL to avoid using environment
  variables when running as root.

- Security fix: check the result of RSA-CRT to reduce the possibility
  of deducing the private key from an incorrectly calculated signature.

- Security fix: prevent Bleichenbacher's DSA attack.

- Security fix: Zero the premaster secret after deriving the master
  secret in DH ciphersuites.
