Re: New OpenSSL installed -- recompilation required?

Dear all,

after I have installed the latest libssl, do I need to re-compile
anything that makes use of libssl?  Concrete examples for me are:
- OpenSSH
- Mod_SSL

The reason I am asking for, on my server I have OpenSSH and Apache
"hand-tailored" to fit our needs.  However, for compile-options, I
make use of the ones submitted with each as default.

Thanks for any enlightenment.

I believe that the answer is yes, you will need to recompile using the updated source packages, but I don't know the debian policy or reference that states this. It seems that the same would go for using a back-ported package. You'd have to watch for the security announcement and then keep watching for an update from the back-port source.
