    Earlier this month, OpenSSL released a security advisory about the SSL/TLS MITM vulnerability. This Man in the Middle vulnerability affects OpenSSL before 0.9.8za, 1.0.0 before 1.0.0m, and 1.0.1 before 1.0.1h. In a nutshell, it means that eavesdropping attackers have the opportunity to intercept data between a client and a server during the handshake that establishes secure connections. This vulnerability is a follow-on to last month’s Heartbleed issue.

    In case you’ve missed our recent patch notifications, I wanted to let our customers know that we have patched the Perforce server versions 2012.1 to 2014.1 by linking in OpenSSL version 1.0.1h. Due to the nature of MITM vulnerabilities, there is no need to also patch Perforce clients.
