I am running 12.04 but the question applies to all ubuntu versions. Is there a package for a specific (actually I am only interested in the newest) version of openssl? Although I have the latest security patches installed, I do not get an up-to-date version of openssl, only an "old" one with some security patches applied.
If there is no prebuilt version available, what would be the best approach? Is it possible to download simply the newest version of openssl and build a regular package from that and install it?
