Centos – 3 Ways to Check openSSL Version / Heartbleed vulnerability

If you’re running a Centos server or cPanel WHM and want to see if your server’s OpenSSL version is affected by Heartbleed you can do a few things. Here are three ways to check

Check your OpenSSL version via the command line

run this:

openssl version

It should result in something like this:

OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

While 1.0.1e is listed as being vulnerable, your system may have already had a patch installed to fix that version, so to check for that patch run:

rpm -q --changelog openssl-1.0.1e | grep -B 1 CVE-2014-0160

If the patch has been applied you should get a result like this:

* Mon Apr 07 2014 Tomáš Mráz <tmraz @redhat.com> 1.0.1e-16.7
- fix CVE-2014-0160 - information disclosure in TLS heartbeat extension</tmraz>
