When will Splunk address the OpenSSL vulnerability issue (CVE-2016-2107; OpenSSL <1.0.2h)?

Splunk 6.4.1 is linked against OpenSSL 1.0.2g which has a security flaw (CVE-2016-2107). When will Splunk with fixed OpenSSL (1.0.2h) be available?

Our next maintenance release will include the 1.0.2h version.

Exactly what did you download and from where? We just confirmed that 6.4.2 is using OpenSSL 1.0.2h for both Linux and for Windows.

I was looking here http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.2/ReleaseNotes/OpenSSL which states 6.4.2 still has v1.0.2g. But I did install last night and you are correct, it is running 1.0.2h

thanks for the quick response

I have the same problem, and other vulnerabilities found in communication between the Universal Forwarder and Splunk Manager.

Does anyone know how to mitigate these vulnerabilities? Force use TLS? How do correctly?

We are targeting the release for the second or third week of July. All such release dates may change if unanticipated issues arise.
