    OpenSSL 3.0.6 and below have a critical security vulnerability with fix in OpenSSL 3.0.7 https://twitter.com/prdonahue/status/1584945487727263753

    and https://mta.openssl.org/pipermail/openssl-announce/2022-October/000238.html

    CentOS 7 uses OpenSSL 1.0.2k and CentOS 7 Centmin Mod Nginx uses OpenSSL 1.1.1 so not impacted unless you optionally enable and use OpenSSL 3.0 yourself.

    AlmaLinux 8/Rocky Linux 8 use OpenSSL 1.1.1 for system and for Centmin Mod Nginx OpenSSL. However, AlmaLinux 9/Rocky Linux 9 use OpenSSL 3.0 for system and for Centmin Mod Nginx OpenSSL 1.1.1. Both EL8/EL9 OSes are not publicly supported in Centmin Mod as yet. But private beta testing of EL8 OS for Centmin Mod is underway.

    Who cares?:) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9, forks and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS are the only enterprise server OS's that are on OpenSSL 3. And so new that it seems unlikely to me that many are affected by this CVE. After all, there's no reason to deploy this new software, so soon at a serious company of size. On production of course.

    Is it worth it already to change to openssl 3.0 in nginx?
