Will Heartbleed affect my product?

Friday 11/04/14, Dublin, Ireland.

The Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL (CVE-2014-0160) has received a significant amount of attention over the last few days. While the discovered issue is specific to OpenSSL, we would like to give reassurances to our customers that we have been working to eliminate susceptibility on all our products.

Recent code releases for some of our routers incorporated OpenSSL 1.0.1 and are vulnerable to the Heartbleed exploit.

For hardware products that are currently vulnerable (see list below), Virtual Access has upgraded the main trunk (from which all versions of OpenSSL come) to OpenSSL 1.0.1g. As new software releases are created from today, they will all have this fix.

Our support teams are in touch with customers using their own branch, as they will need a specific release for their product.

No action is required for products that are currently not vulnerable.

Below is a list of products and information on vulnerabilities for each range.
