This question already has an answer here:
How do I upgrade OpenSSL using Ubuntu's repository?
I see the USN at http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-2165-1/
and the package here https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openssl/1.0.1-4ubuntu5.12
but I can't find instructions on how to use that to upgrade my OpenSSL version.
The standard update commands don't upgrade my version of ssl:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade openssl OpenSSL> version OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012
How do I get the latest version from the repository?
dpkg --list openssl
