OpenSSL to Patch Critical Bug on Thursday


The OpenSSL project team will be patching a high severity bug this Thursday, July 9.  The OpenSSL project team will announce the forthcoming release of OpenSSL versions 1.0.2d and 1.0.1p.  These releases will fix a single security defect classified as “high” severity.  It should be noted that this defect does not affect the 1.0.0 or 0.9.8 releases.  According to OpenSSL’s security policy, “high-severity” flaws are those that affect common configurations and are likely to be exploitable. These can range from server denial-of-service to significant leak of server memory to remote code execution. This type of a pre-announcement is intended to give organizations a chance to prepare.
