Is RHEL is vulnerable to HeartBleed bug?

+1 vote

I've seen several articles that listed Centos 6.x as vulnerable, but DID NOT LIST RHEL 6.

I'd think that if Centos 6.x is vulnerable, then so would RHEL 6.x, since Centos is made from RHEL sources.

Does anyone know for sure either way?

This issue did not affect the versions of openssl as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 and earlier, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5 and 6, and Red Hat JBoss Web Server 1 and 2.

This issue does affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 6.5, and Red Hat Storage 2.1, which provided openssl 1.0.1e. Errata have been released to correct this issue.

I am building a cherrypy app that is testing as vulnerable to the heartbleed exploit.

The app is running on the 64 bit 3.3.5 Windows distribution of python. An updated version of 64 bit Python 3.3.x for Windows or an updated pyopenssl? I am kind of surprised the distribution on hasen't been updated.

I'm working on doing some upgrade testing to mitigate the Heartbleed issue and some other vulnerabilities. Part of that is updating OpenSSL, but I'm a bit confused about something and am hoping that someone can help me. I've done at least a dozen internet searches and can't find the answer. It's probably simple, but I'd like to find out anyway.

What do I need to do in order to update the version of OpenSSL that is included in the Apache HTTP server release? I've installed OpenSSL 1.0.1g on the server, but the older version is still in the apache /bin directory. Do I simply replace the openssl executable or is there some kind of change that needs to be made in the httpd.conf file to point to the newer installation?
