It seems that OpenSSL problem is merely addressed by DLA-2761-1;
DLA-2760-1 deals with another package.

As far as I can tell, there is no v1.0 of OpenSSL in beowulf, as the
transition between v1.0 & v1.1 was done in stretch (ascii).

Moreover, that problem could only arise in stretch (ascii) if the TLS
certificate agent was/is running against OpenSSL v1.0 and not v1.1; if
the agent has been updated in the past 4 years, it was probably not the
case anymore... and if it wasn't updated in the past 4 years, why are
people even using that anymore? (o:

Thanks for the piece of information, though.
