openssl heartbleed updates for Fedora 19 and 20

heartbleedThe openssl heartbleed bug has made the rounds today and there are two new testing builds or openssl out for Fedora 19 and 20:

Both builds are making their way over into the updates-testing stable repository thanks to some quick testing and karma from the Fedora community.

If the stable updates haven’t made it into your favorite mirror yet, you can live on the edge and grab the koji builds:

For Fedora 19 x86_64:

yum -y install koji
koji download-build --arch=x86_64 openssl-1.0.1e-37.fc19.1
yum localinstall openssl-1.0.1e-37.fc19.1.x86_64.rpm

For Fedora 20 x86_64:

yum -y install koji
koji download-build --arch=x86_64 openssl-1.0.1e-37.fc20.1
yum localinstall openssl-1.0.1e-37.fc20.1.x86_64.rpm

Be sure to replace _x8664 with i686 for 32-bit systems or armv7hl for ARM systems (Fedora 20 only). If your system has openssl-libs or other package installed, be sure to install those with yum as well.

Kudos to Dennis Gilmore for the hard work and to the Fedora community for the quick tests.
