3. Description:

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and
Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols, as well as a full-strength
general-purpose cryptography library.

Security Fix(es):

* openssl: Using a Custom Cipher with NID_undef may lead to NULL encryption
(CVE-2022-3358)
