How to install "libssl0.9.8" ?
 
Hello.
I use Debian 8.6 amd64 and I like to install "libssl0.9.8" but this package not found!!!
Code:

$ sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree     
Reading state information... Done
Package libssl0.9.8 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libssl0.9.8' has no installation candidate

Thank you.

Comodo install issues...
 
I realize this post is about 6 months old but I was wondering did anyone ever find a fix for this? I am having the exact issue. When trying to install Comodo Anitvirus it specifically requires libssl0.9.8 which seems to be impossible to install.

Anyone who has any help to offer or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

This thread is actually three YEARS old. You don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using, what version of Comodo, where you got it, or how you're doing the install, but for openSUSE it doesn't ask for that package. The SSL libraries have been updated a good bit in three years.

FIX FOUND for LINUX Mint and other debian versions...
 
After posting my question I finally found a way to fix this issue by locating and directly installing the library needed which can be found here:

https://pkgs.org/download/libssl0.9.8

I wanted to share so now this thread can be closed for good.

This is a **HORRIBLY BAD** idea...the package you installed is very old, and you have actually DOWNGRADED the security on your system a very good bit, ironically trying to install an anti-virus program to keep you more secure.

If you installed the latest version of Comodo, it would use the latest libraries.

1) You correct and I apologize, I was working with 5 different forums at the time trying to find the answer and had thought I included that information. LINUX Mint Tina, 64bit Intel system
2) Three years old: again, I was just trying to post to too many forums at once, that was supposed to read over 6 months old. It has always been my experience that any forum posts over 6 months old are normally considered dead, complete, finished...thus my remark. Was obviously trying to do too much at once. =)

However, I did find an answer for the issue that worked great for me, so I shared what I found right away for others.

Understand and that's great...but your solution has made your system *MORE* insecure. Asked what version of Comodo you were installing and where you got it too, since a new version of that package won't ask for a VERY old SSL implementation.

Auch :(
That package doesn't even include all its ancient security updates.

Remove it ASAP.

Please DON'T.
Others can (and did) read your post.
It's terrible advice, just don't.
