Fedora Safe from DROWNing Attack

If you are familiar with security , you likely  saw the disclosure yesterday of the openssl v2 vulnerability given the sensational name  “Drown”.  Good news if you use Fedora (and it’s updated  — Update with 20160229 ISOs) you don’t need to worry about  a  0 day  vuln fix.  Openssl-1.0.2g  IS the patched version and  is on all Fedora Infrastructure and  openssl that is shipped in fedora  DEFAULTS to having the v2 AND v3  protocols  not  built-in “Compiled without openSSLv2/v3 support”.

Have a read at the  official Fedora Magazine article to this effect Fedora Not “Drown”ing.
