Just heard about the heartbleed news over the internet for OpenSSL and wondering if it affects ios apps as well. My app uses openssl crypto library and thus the concern !

Any views in this regard would be much appreciated !


  • You are the developer? If you used openssl 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f for TLS connections and compiled without -DOPENSSL_NO_HEARTBEATS then you are probably vulnerable. Test, then patch as required. Apr 10, 2014 at 15:19
  • @scuzzy-delta.. I am not very familiar with the security but it turns out we indeed used an affected version. From what I read earlier on the web mostly, it appeared only web servers were affected but the link you shared says clients are affected as well. Thanks a lot.. much appreciated !
