Description Christopher McCrory 2002-12-28 13:58:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
Use latest OpenSSL version 0.9.6h ( or 0.9.7-beta6 )

From: http://httpd.apache.org/

If you are running an SSL-enabled web server using OpenSSL, upgrade to at least
version 0.9.6e of OpenSSL and recompile all applications that use OpenSSL.

_I_ know that RedHat has backported the security fixes, but I run into people
that don't/can't seem to grasp that.  

If not for RH 8.0.92+  then please consider it for RH AS 'nextversion'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

see Bugzilla bug id # 69634

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-01 05:20:53 UTC
We are not going to update to a beta version, and 0.9.6<whatever> isn't
particularly interesting. We'll look at 0.9.7 if a final version comes out in
enough time.

Comment 3 Peter van Egdom 2003-01-04 09:52:26 UTC
According to "http://www.openssl.org/" OpenSSL version 0.9.7 is available.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-09 22:36:58 UTC
And, in rawhide... is 0.9.7. ;)
