Puppy Linux 5.7.1 has a vulnerable version of SSL


This will show the new users how to fix this.


First open terminal or console, And type

openssl version -a


This just shows your ssl version.




Now Click Menu/SetUp/Puppy Package Manager.


 And click the Configure package manager





Click the Update now button



These are the updates, Hit enter to everything and let it update, This could take 3 or 4 minutes.

When it's all done click ok and you will return to the main part of PPM.



In the find box type ssl and hit enter.






And select the Search all repositories



Here it says that you already have it all installed, Ignore that.



First we need OpenSSL 1.0.1




then libssl 1.0.0_1.0.1



after they are both downloaded installed and Puppy has done its thing, Open terminal or and type.

openssl version -a


You can see the build date has changed to April 7 2014.


And all shall be well with the world.

@ Nick:-


Y'know, I've only just found this via a link from a post on Murga-Linux.


Since Precise 571 is currently the solitary Pup on the old Dell lappie (new install just a few weeks back) - and I know I haven't sorted this out (wasn't even aware of it..!) - I'll be 'fixing' it later on this evening.


Cheers, mate. :thumbup2:



Mike. :wink:


EDIT:- Now showing 'build date' as Jan 30 2017. Unbelievable, but the repos are still accessible, 18 months after EOL....
