Heartbleed Vulnerability

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if this question is totally irrelevant, but I figured it would be safest to check:

 

Is BitTorrent Sync using OpenSSL, and if so, is it a version that is vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug?

 

I have gone ahead and updated openssl on all of my linux machines, but I am curious to know if anything needs to be done for Windows machines w.r.t. BTSync specifically?

 

Thanks!

Not for Windows, no. It does not use OpenSSL on Windows.

For non-Windows machines, all you'd need to do is restart btsync after updating OpenSSL if you were using one of the vulnerable versions.
