How to upgrade / fix Ubuntu openssl heartbleed bug

If you read the heartbleed.com website – it suggested the Ubuntu is not secure because there are still using openssl 1.0.1f. If your Ubuntu computer is up to date then it is secure. Ubuntu have back ported the changes from openssl 1.0.1g to 1.0.1.f.

i.e. just: apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

  2. Hi,
    I’ve upgrated openssl that way and have upgraded freeradius from ppa to 2.2.5ppa1
    OpenSSL 1.0.1g 7 Apr 2014

    Now I get this error when starting freeradius
    Error: libssl version mismatch. Built with: 1000100f Linked: 1000107f

    It’s on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    Can someone help me with that issue?

    Thanks in advance!

    regards
    Mike

      1. I had serval segmentation faults with the freeradius-version from the standard repository and the fix is only available in a ppa-release, thats the reason why using the ppa
