OpenSSL DoS Vulnerabilies (update for XAMPP for Linux)

Postby Oswald » 01. October 2006 12:07

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in OpenSSL, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise a vulnerable system. To fix this problem we released an upgrade package for the Linux version of XAMPP.

This upgrade is primary for those people who a using XAMPP in a public or semi public environment, like a local network or the Internet.

You can get the upgrade from the usual place (there you also find an explanation how to install the upgrade). More information about the vulnerability: here
