Whoever decided this platform is a good idea, was in my opinion 
wrong. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SUSE_Linux_Enterprise tells 
me that a) there was SP4 … why in the world you would not 
install that?, b) it was released April 2011, and all support of 
SLES 10 ceased on 2016-03-30.

Such system is either so disconnected from everything, that 
patching OpenSSL doesn't matter, or patching just OpenSSL (if it 
was possible at all) doesn't make much difference.
