I wanted to ask what the plan is regarding the latest openssl vulnerabilities, especially CVE-2014-0224.

Can we expect it to be included with the June update (I am willing to another week if so) or would it rather be minor update as we had it with the mms fixes?

PS I would be kind of a bummer if this would have to wait until August...

The update was delayed by a few days to test this. So it is now fixed in Saapunki

Good to hear. However, did this cause extra delay? The GnuTLS library in the current release is broken as well. According to earlier comment, this will be fixed in the upcoming release too. But in the mean time, we're still vulnerable...

@Fuzzillogic If you're really worried you are a target for those exploits and you need a fix now you can upgrade the library yourself . And accept potential breakage that comes with the update.

The sane answer is. Sit back and relax, have nice $favourite_beverage and wait for the update that is coming soon ;)

Do we have an ETA for 'upcoming'?

@Fuzzillogic Yes, it causes extra delay as we need to make sure everything still works after patching the openssl.

@strongm No, we do not have publicly available ETA other than early June. :)

Excellent! We'll soon be running out of early June ... ;-)
