OpenSSL 0.9.8k was updated to fix several security issues.

by rejecting connections with DH parameters shorter than 1024 bits.
We now also generate 2048-bit DH parameters by default.

* CVE-2015-1789: An out-of-bounds read in X509_cmp_time was fixed.
* CVE-2015-1790: A PKCS7 decoder crash with missing EnvelopedContent
was fixed.
* CVE-2015-1792: A CMS verification infinite loop when using an
unknown hash function was fixed.
* CVE-2015-1791: Fixed a race condition in NewSessionTicket creation.
* CVE-2015-3216: Fixed a potential crash in ssleay_rand_bytes due to
locking regression.
* fixed a timing side channel in RSA decryption (bnc#929678)

Additional changes:

* In the default SSL cipher string EXPORT ciphers are now disabled.
This will only get active if applications get rebuilt and actually
use this string. (bnc#931698)
* Added the ECC ciphersuites to the DEFAULT cipher class (bnc#879179)
