Debian OpenSSL Package Random Number Generator Weakness

The Debian OpenSSL package is prone to a random-number-generator weakness.

Attackers can exploit this issue to predict random data used to generate encryption keys by certain applications. This may help attackers compromise encryption keys and gain access to sensitive data.

This issue affects only a modified OpenSSL package for Debian prior to version 0.9.8c-4etch3.
