Vulnerabilities discovered in OpenSSL <0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in openssl:

The implementation of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and PKCS #7 in
OpenSSL before 0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h does not properly restrict
certain oracle behavior, which makes it easier for context-dependent
attackers to decrypt data via a Million Message Attack (MMA) adaptive
chosen ciphertext attack (CVE-2012-0884).

The mime_param_cmp function in crypto/asn1/asn_mime.c in OpenSSL before
0.9.8u and 1.x before 1.0.0h allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a
crafted S/MIME message, a different vulnerability than CVE-2006-7250

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Please update your systems accordingly.
