The OpenSSL team published fixes for several security issues [1] yesterday:

* Memory corruption in the ASN.1 encoder (CVE-2016-2108)
* Padding oracle in AES-NI CBC MAC check (CVE-2016-2107)
* EVP_EncodeUpdate overflow (CVE-2016-2105)
* EVP_EncryptUpdate overflow (CVE-2016-2106)

This Core Update brings you OpenSSL 1.0.2h which fixes all of these above.
Additionally OpenSSH is updated to version 7.2p2 and will be restarted during
