A tool to check your site for The Heartbleed Bug

logged by @logbot 2014-04-08T10:27:50Z permalink

A very nasty OpenSSL bug called Heartbleed was made public yesterday. Millions of websites around the world are leaking private information despite using SSL/TLS.

Is your site vulnerable? Find out with Filippo Valsorda's Heartbleed Test.

Here's a link to our test for thechangelog.com. We run on Ubuntu so we followed these update instructions and in 3 minutes we were fixed.

Remediation steps differ depending on operating system, but with Heartbleed Test we can all make sure we've patched up properly. Thanks Filippo!

UPDATE: Filippo provides a web-based tool to check your site, but we suggest downloading the source and running the tool from your own trusted host. Here's a How To if you need help! (Thanks to André Wendt for the suggestion and Jan Lenhardt for the gist)
