Subject Re: OpenSSL vunerability (bleedheart)

It might be good to add the particulars of what in the system VMs have
problems, so people know what urgency there is. For example, if the
only system vm that has an SSL service running on it is console proxy,
then an immediate mitigation is to focus on updating that (or shut it
down).  It doesn't do much good to have people go to the trouble of
updating all of their routers if the routers aren't running any
affected services. Certainly the instructions are helpful to be safe,
but if we can give people the info about the exposure then they can

1.0.1e-2+deb7u6 (dpkg -l|grep openssl) and this package is ok according to the changelog:

Can anyone confirm they have 1.0.1e-2+deb7u5+ ?
