Details:

USN-3692-1 fixed a vulnerability in OpenSSL. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 Keegan Ryan discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled ECDSA key
 generation. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a
 cache-timing attack and recover private ECDSA keys. (CVE-2018-0495)

 Guido Vranken discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled very large
 prime values during a key agreement. A remote attacker could possibly
 use this issue to consume resources, leading to a denial of service.
 (CVE-2018-0732)

 Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya, Billy Brumley, Cesar Pereida Garcia and Luis
 Manuel Alvarez Tapia discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled RSA
 key generation. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a
 cache-timing attack and recover private RSA keys. (CVE-2018-0737)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
