There was not enough solid information regarding how to simply update Ubuntu 14 from the openssl 1.0.1f version to the openssl 1.0.1g version. Here is what I found:

??sudo add-apt-repository ppa:george-edison55/openssl-heartbleed-fix
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


$ aptitude show openssl
Package: openssl

Description: Secure Sockets Layer toolkit - cryptographic utility
 This package is part of the OpenSSL project's implementation of the SSL and TLS cryptographic
 protocols for secure communication over the Internet.
 It contains the general-purpose command line binary /usr/bin/openssl,
 useful for cryptographic operations such as:
 * creating RSA, DH, and DSA key parameters;
 * creating X.509 certificates,  CSRs, and CRLs;
 * calculating message digests;
 * encrypting and decrypting with ciphers;
 * testing SSL/TLS clients and servers;
 * handling S/MIME signed or encrypted mail.
