Debian: Security update for OpenSSL

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 certificates. This update to OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit, reflects this decision by marking Digicert Sdn. Bhd.’s certificates as revoked. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
