Comment 1 John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-02-16 16:22:02 UTC
1.1.1j is released:

    Fixed a NULL pointer deref in the X509_issuer_and_serial_hash() function (CVE-2021-23841)
    Fixed the RSA_padding_check_SSLv23() function and the RSA_SSLV23_PADDING padding mode to correctly check for rollback attacks
    Fixed an overflow in the EVP_CipherUpdate, EVP_EncryptUpdate and EVP_DecryptUpdate functions (CVE-2021-23840)
    Fixed SRP_Calc_client_key so that it runs in constant time

Please bump.
