Three security issues were discovered in OpenSSL: A timing attack against ECDSA, a padding oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode() and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey() and it was discovered that a feature of the random number generator (RNG) intended to protect against shared RNG state between parent and child processes in the event of a fork() syscall was not used by default.
