OpenSSL Heartbleed bug: CVE-2014-0160

L1 Bithead


Just wondering if any Palo Alto versions are affected by this bug in OpenSSL?



Not applicable

I would like to know this, too. We need a word on this, anything really. A security company like Palo Alto should be on top of issues like this.

likewise - are the PAN devices using OpenSSL under the hood for cert creation?

If so, which vers?

I know many of our F5s are "safe" as they run 0.9.8x

Any plans on releasing an update to patch CVE-2014-0160 exploits?

I have tested GP SSL VPN for the heartbleed bug. It seems PANOS 6.0.1 is not vulnerable.

I just tested the same against 5.0.10 --> Not vulnerable !

Palo Alto Networks does not use the Open SSL version that has this vulnerability. Please open a support case if you would like to get more info in the coverage for CVE-2014-0160.


We really need some kind of a badge or little PA icon indicator next to people that actually work for PA, that are speaking on behalf of the company. I have no idea if dpalani works for PA or not, and whether this is the "official word" or not

agreed, im calling to confirm 100%. this ones a doozy.

CVE-2014-0160 is reported on open ssl version 1.0.1 and the firewall uses version 0.9.8, you are more than welcome to open up a case with support and confirm that.

Anyone spoken with support about a Vulnerability Protection signature update to catch this?

Or has anyone managed to create a custom signature?

I would like to know this as well. I was thinking about trying to do this but I think this is big enough Palo Alto should do this if it is possible. This would be great to buy us some time on mitigating this.

PAN-OS is not vulnerable to this bug, as we use an older branch of OpenSSL (0.9.8) which is not affected by this issue.

Is PAN-OS vulnerable?

PAN-OS is not vulnerable, as we use an older branch of OpenSSL (0.9.8) which is not affected by this issue.

Are Palo Alto Networks public services vulnerable?

We are in the midst of evaluating our own exposure to CVE-2014-0160 within our public-facing infrastructure, including the update service, WildFire, PAN-DB, public web site, etc.  We do not yet have the results of this analysis but we will provide an update once our investigation and remediation is complete.

Does Palo Alto Networks provide IPS coverage for this vulnerability?

Our threat research team is researching the vulnerability in an effort to provide coverage ASAP.  We hope to have coverage released late today, but we cannot commit to a release timeframe until protections are developed and tested.

What should customers do if they identify vulnerable servers (running OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f)?

Vulnerable servers should be patched to OpenSSL 1.0.1g (available as of April 7th 2014).  SSL private keys should be assumed to be compromised and should be replaced after the OpenSSL patch is in place.

I was wondering if we could create a vulnerability signature to alert, then setup a rule to block this type of traffic.

Any update on the timing of the IPS signature release for this?
