A new vulnerability has been discovered and fixed in OpenSSL that could allow
a "man-in-the-middle" attack to succeed if both sides are running vulnerable
versions of OpenSSL.  This particular bug affects all versions of OpenSSL, so
please update your systems when the update becomes available.

The updated release of OpenSSL also fixes some other vulnerabilities in the
code, but none of those are as serious as the possible MITM attack.
