The OpenSSL version used for 2.7.6 is 0.9.8y.
Upgrading to 1.0.0 or 1.0.1 will likely need a few minor tweaks, but not cause general breakage - at least that's my experience with the egenix-pyopenssl distribution.
For the record, if we had done that a few months ago, the breakage would have been called Heartbleed.
