Heartbleed Vulnerability fix on Webuzo

Heartbleed LogoThe Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.

This tutorial guide users to manually upgrade their OpenSSL installation.

Step 1) Find the architecture of your server
Root > uname -i

Step 2) Stop your webserver (Apache/Nginx/Lighttpd)
For Apache
Root > service httpd stop

Step 3) Remove and Create the OpenSSL directory to download the latest packages.
Root > rm -rf /var/softaculous/apps/openssl/
Root > mkdir /var/softaculous/apps/openssl/
Root > cd /var/softaculous/apps/openssl/

Download the openssl package as per your architecture.
For 32 bit machine (x86)
Root > wget http://files.webuzo.com/apps/openssl-x86.zip

For 64 bit machine (x86_64)
Root > wget http://files.webuzo.com/apps/openssl-x86_64.zip

Step 4) Unzip the archive
For 32 bit machine (x86)
Root > unzip openssl-x86.zip
Root > rm -rf openssl-x86.zip

For 64 bit machine (x86_64)
Root > unzip openssl-x86_64.zip
Root > rm -rf openssl-x86_64.zip

Step 5) Extract the archive on the existing openssl location
Root > cd /usr/local/apps
For 32 bit machine (x86)
Root > tar -zxvf /var/softaculous/apps/openssl/openssl-x86.tar.gz

For 64 bit machine (x86_64)
Root > tar -zxvf /var/softaculous/apps/openssl/openssl-x86_64.tar.gz

Step 6) Start the webserver(Apache/Nginx/Lighttpd)
For Apache
Root > service httpd start

Step 7) Confirm your OpenSSL version
Root > /usr/local/apps/bin/openssl version

Test your server for CVE-2014-0160 !!!

We will be launching a New version of Webuzo soon which will automatically fix this issue !!!

If you still face any issues, please open a support ticket with the root details of your server and access to your Webuzo Enduser Panel, we will resolve your issues.
