I need to correct myself on this.  The version of OpenSSL that Apple includes in the current OS X is 0.9.8y 5 Feb 2013.  I now see that the previously reported version was add by me from MacPorts.

OpenSSL v1.0.1f is still included in the library so I don't anticipate any immediate issues for developers or users, but we'll have to wait for a ClamAV® developer release to be certain and there's no telling how long Apple will continue to include it.  After that I'm sure there will be ports available that can be adapted.
