Oracle have released a post detailing exactly whichheartbleed products are vulnerable to Heartbleed, which have fixes available and which aren’t vulnerable at all.

If you aren’t aware of what Heartbleed is, here’s a primer:

There’s also an excellent web-comic here that explains quickly how the exploit works:

Here is Oracle’s list:

Happily, PeopleSoft is on the ‘not vulnerable’ list.

This doesn’t mean that you’re completely safe of course. You may well be using other components in your system that were impacted. At Succeed, for example, we use Amazon’s Elastic Load Balancer that was vulnerable but has now been patched.

Haha … I love that comic. That is exactly what the bug does ;)

Btw, I have created a utility to test if any site is vulnerable to heartbleed bug at heartbleedtester.org
Hopefully, it should help some of your readers here.
