OpenSSL Security Advisory [07 Apr 2014] ======================================== TLS heartbeat read overrun (CVE-2014-0160) ========================================== A missing bounds check in the handling of the TLS heartbeat extension can be used to reveal up to 64k of memory to a connected client or server. Only 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta releases of OpenSSL are affected including 1.0.1f and 1.0.2-beta1. Thanks for Neel Mehta of Google Security for discovering this bug and to Adam Langley <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Bodo Moeller <email@example.com> for preparing the fix.
