Several security issues were fixed in OpenSSL.

Software Description:
- openssl: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) cryptographic library and tools
- openssl1.0: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) cryptographic library and tools

Samuel Weiser discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled DSA signing. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a timing side-channel
attack and recover private DSA keys. (CVE-2018-0734)

Samuel Weiser discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled ECDSA signing. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a timing side-channel
attack and recover private ECDSA keys. This issue only affected Ubuntu
18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.10. (CVE-2018-0735)

Billy Bob Brumley, Cesar Pereida Garcia, Sohaib ul Hassan, Nicola Tuveri,
and Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya discovered that Simultaneous Multithreading
(SMT) architectures are vulnerable to side-channel leakage. This issue is
known as "PortSmash". An attacker could possibly use this issue to perform
a timing side-channel attack and recover private keys. (CVE-2018-5407)
