On the 26 ISC handler Rob posted a onliner that a major flaw exposed TLS traffic (CVE-2016-0701) where an attacker could decrypt and obtain information on traffic that you would deem secure. More recently (in version 1.0.2) support was provided for generating X9.42 style parameter files such as those required for RFC 5114 support. [2]

If you are upgrading from source code, the latest version can be downloaded here or check your Linux version for package update.
