HPSR Software security content update - Heartbleed bug detection

joe_sechman on ‎04-11-2014 03:08 PM

HP Security Research is pleased to offer new security content to detect the Heartbleed bug with HP WebInspect. The download is available immediately via SmartUpdate and includes the following features:

  • A new check for detecting the TLS Heartbeat extension buffer over-read vulnerability known to manifest in OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta
  • A dedicated "OpenSSL Heartbleed" policy

To most effectively leverage this security content update, configure HP WebInspect to execute a scan against your application server(s) in Audit Only mode and select the “OpenSSL Heartbleed” policy.


We recommend that customers verify their OpenSSL deployments and ensure that all of the library installations have been upgraded to either 1.0.1g or 1.0.2-beta2 and above. To verify the version of your existing OpenSSL installation, run the command openssl version.
