Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Yutaka Oiwa discovered a vulnerability in the Open Secure Socket Layer

protocol-version rollback attacks that could lead to the use of the
weaker SSL 2.0 protocol even though both ends support SSL 3.0 or TLS
1.0.
The following matrix explains which version in which distribution has
this problem corrected.
We recommend that you upgrade your libssl packages.
