OpenSSL is an open source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a general purpose cryptography library.
Topically, the host involved in todays fraud attack on National Westminster was, according to the published Apache module line running a vulnerable version of OpenSSL.
