Watch It Now!

Heartbleed is not an exploit you want to ignore as an IT professional. It exposes passwords and cryptographic keys, and requires not only that you patch OpenSSL for each of the services using the OpenSSL library, but also that you replace the private keys and certificates so that attackers won’t be able to use any of the data compromised by the vulnerability. The simplicity of the exploit makes it powerful. It appears that over a half million websites are vulnerable.

In this session we'll cover:

  • What you need to know about the Heartbleed vulnerability
  • How to detect it using AlienVault USM
  • How to investigate successful Heartbleed exploits
