OpenSSL libraries not up-to-date

Post by omniplex »

Hi, I'm not sure where to post this: Apparently the XnView 2.33 addons contain OpenSSL 1.0.0.15 libraries built in October, 2014. With a = 1, b = 2, etc. that corresponds to OpenSSL 1.0.0o (lower case O = 15). As of June, 2015 the recommended 1.0.0? version is 1.0.0s (s = 19). There are also 1.0.1? and 1.0.2? branches, but I can't tell what the difference is. Sooner or later software like Secunia PSI will scream havoc if it finds older OpenSSL libraries.

Thanks, state of the art as of today is 1.0.1p :bugfixed: There's no new 1.0.0? on their site, maybe 1.0.0s is not affected by this 1.0.1/1.0.2 bug.

Update, the actual versions as of May 3, 2016, are 1.0.2h or 1.0.1t, respectively. The 0.9.8 and 1.0.0 branches are dead, cf. OpenSSL Security Advisory [3rd May 2016].

XnView 2.36 apparently uses 1.0.2c ("1.0.2.3", June 2015). Oddly their May 2016 advisory talks about 1.0.2c, but I guess they mean 1.0.2h (that would be "1.0.2.8", May 2016).
