An open-source group that maintains software 
for securing communications released a patch 
on Tuesday to fix several vulnerabilities that 
were found during a security test by the U.K. 

The security flaws exist in the OpenSSL Project's 
version of the secure sockets layer (SSL) software 
used by Web sites and browsers to cryptographically 
secure data. Two of the flaws could lead to a 
denial-of-service attack, and a third may allow an 
attacker to break into a system from the Internet. 


Not to be confused with the OpenSSH project--SSH 
stands for secure shell--which has patched its software 
twice in the last month, the OpenSSL Project develops
and maintains an open-source version of SSL software. 
A year ago, the Slapper worm infected Linux computers
that hadn't been patched to fix a different hole in the same
