Greetings - We just got an e-mail from NETSOL about our wildcard cert. They said that there is a security threat in our CSR. How do I update OpenSSL on a Debian linux box.

Thanks!

Run the following as root:

apt-get update

apt-get install openssl

It will install an extra package or 2 which will scan your system for exploitable keys and update them as necessary.  The flaw in OpenSSL revolved around an error with the random number generator used to generate encryption keys.  It is very important to upgrade to the new version of OpenSSL.
