Package        : openssl
Vulnerability  : CA trust revocation
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Several weak certificates were issued by Malaysian intermediate CA 
"Digicert Sdn. Bhd." This event, along with other issues, has lead to
Entrust Inc. and Verizon Cybertrust to revoke the CA's cross-signed

This update to OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit, reflects this
decision by marking Digicert Sdn. Bhd.'s certificates as revoked.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8g-15+lenny14.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8o-4squeeze4.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.0e-2.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.
