Updated Debian 10: 10.12 released

March 26th, 2022

The Debian project is pleased to announce the twelfth update of its oldstable distribution Debian 10 (codename buster). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already been published separately and are referenced where available.

Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 10 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old buster media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror.

Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release.

New installation images will be available soon at the regular locations.

Upgrading an existing installation to this revision can be achieved by pointing the package management system at one of Debian's many HTTP mirrors. A comprehensive list of mirrors is available at:


OpenSSL signature algorithm check tightening

The OpenSSL update provided in this point release includes a change to ensure that the requested signature algorithm is supported by the active security level.

Although this will not affect most use-cases, it could lead to error messages being generated if a non-supported algorithm is requested - for example, use of RSA+SHA1 signatures with the default security level of 2.

In such cases, the security level will need to be explicitly lowered, either for individual requests or more globally. This may require changes to the configuration of applications. For OpenSSL itself, per-request lowering can be achieved using a command-line option such as:

-cipher ALL:@SECLEVEL=1

with the relevant system-level configuration being found in /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf
