OpenSSL in Serv-U ver 15.x

The last Serv-U release notes which mention OpenSSL were from version indicating OpenSSL 0.9.8x.

Does Serv-U version 15.x still use OpenSSL 0.9.8x or has that been updated?

I'm concerned if our Serv-U installation is affected by CVE-2014-0160, HeartBleed OpenSSL vulnerability, which is a nasty one.  OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f (inclusive) are vulnerable.

as mentioned in this post - OpenSSL security concerns Serv-U is NOT affected by this bug.

This is great news.  FWIW, I'm tracking managed file transfer responses to the Heartbleed crisis on my blog.

Just confirmed in my own environment that the latest version of Serv-U 15.0.1 does currently use an OpenSSL  You can confirm this in your Serv-U installation directory.  Specifically the two file versions to check are:


Hence Serv-U is not currently effected by this HeartBleed bug mentioned here

I just check ours with those two files and found out we're using 1.0.1e.

I run to another site" to test vulnerability for our site and it came out as NOT VULNERABLE.

What other steps can I verify that or system is not affected by this bug?

Did you manipulate openssl installation within Serv-U? As it should not be version 1.0.1e. What is the location of those files you are checking?
