I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated

For most packages Ubuntu is following Debian. If you look at https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=openssl&searchon=names&exact=1&suite=all&section=all you see that Debian already started with 1.0.2 in its experimental suite.

I assume that within a reasonable time frame Debian will also introduce 1.0.2 in its unstable and/or testing suites, and then Ubuntu will start taking over that version into its development release.

My guess is that we will see openssl 1.0.2 from Ubuntu 15.10 onwards (or eventually only starting with 16.04)

Do not expect that the new release will be backported to the older Ubuntu releases (as long as the openssl release strategy http://www.openssl.org/about/releasestrat.html does not force to do that).

Can you help with this problem?
