This HotFix addresses an issue with Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL 1.0.1E, which NTM uses. There is a potential security issue--for outbound communications only--when using AES with SNMPv3.
This fix requires SolarWinds NTM 2.0.
To install this HotFix:
1. Extract files from the compressed archive (.zip) to a directory accessible by your NTM machine.
2. Close Network Topology Mapper if it is running.
3. Shutdown "SolarWinds Network Topology Job Scheduler" service, as follows:
a. Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
b. Stop "SolarWinds Network Topology Job Scheduler" service.
4. Go to "c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SolarWinds\OpenSSL\", move the folders "x64" and "x86" to a backup location, and replace them in the OpenSSL folder with the appropriate folders from this hotfix.
Note: On 32bit systems, the folders are located in "c:\Program Files\Common Files\SolarWinds\OpenSSL\".
