Debian: Security update for OpenSSL

It was discovered that openssl did not correctly handle explicit Initialization Vectors for CBC encryption modes, as used in TLS 1.1, 1.2, and DTLS. An incorrect calculation would lead to an integer underflow and incorrect memory access, causing denial of service (application crash.) Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

Package        : openssl
Vulnerability  : integer underflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-2333

It was discovered that openssl did not correctly handle explicit
Initialization Vectors for CBC encryption modes, as used in TLS 1.1,
1.2, and DTLS. An incorrect calculation would lead to an integer
underflow and incorrect memory access, causing denial of service
(application crash.)

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8o-4squeeze13.
