FileMaker Server and Heartbleed bug in the OpenSSL


The Heartbleed bug is a vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library.   The vulnerability applies to specific versions of the OpenSSL library.

FileMaker Server 13 includes a version of OpenSSL which has been identified as being vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.  At this time we are not aware of any tools which could exploit this vulnerability in FileMaker Server 13.

FileMaker Server 12 and prior server versions are not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.  FileMaker Pro clients (any version) and FileMaker Go clients (any version) are not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug when used standalone or when networked-peer-to-peer.

We are updating FileMaker Server 13 to replace the installed version of the OpenSSL library.  We will issue this update as soon as it is ready.

In the meantime, you may manually replace the OpenSSL library.  Since this is a manual update you should be careful.
