We are concerned with the OpenSSL vulnerabilities and are running a SLES11SP1 server. unfortunately, due to admin reasons, our support expired, and so we are looking at manually upgdating OpenSSL and its required libraries manually. Is there a script, or recommended way to get the latest version of OpenSSL and make either an RPM or install the modules directly on the OS ?

zypper up as root from a terminal should do the trick.

Does not work, as the support is expired and SUSE is no more providing updates for the version we are using. I am looking for an alternate way to install OpenSSL, one where I can just install the right RPM files and get everything updated for OpenSSL and its dependencies. –  jfmessier Jun 12 '14 at 1:28
You can either compile from source or create your own RPMs. Here's the latest source : openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1h.tar.gz . Instructions here : wiki.openssl.org/index.php/Compilation_and_Installation . –  schaiba Jun 13 '14 at 13:18
