I think we can safely ignore OpenSSL 0.9.7 as the final release was over 11 years ago.

Like I was saying it is a red^H^H^Hdead herring :-\

The 0.9.8 will only be encountered on rusting RHEL 5 (mainstream EOL a year ago in spring) and similarly ancient installations across other os/architectures.

*nod*

1.0.0 only saw the light of day in broad adoption via SLES 11 (mainstream EOL spring next year).

The Oracle folks pushed out 1.0.2 onto legacy Solaris a while ago :

$ which openssl
/usr/bin/openssl
$ /usr/bin/openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.2n  7 Dec 2017

A disaster is what I am thinking.

Anything pre 1.x.y should be considered rust.
