This is regular security task, I have a number for servers running HAproxy on ubuntu 14.04 LTC on AWS. Since USN-2830-1 is a OpenSSL vulnerability I believe we must patch our HAproxy instances, but on the official docs of ubuntu, it just says :

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I am not very sure if this is sufficient or not. Any guidance is appreciated


Per the Ubuntu vulnerability, running those commands is sufficient. Ubuntu is a reliable Linux distro, not known to make false claims. So you should be secure.
