I’m a software engineer on the Kernel team.
Where were you before MongoDB? Why did you choose to come to MongoDB?
This post is to inform MongoDB users how MongoDB products and services were affected by the Heartbleed bug (CVE-2014-0160).
MongoDB (non Windows)
MongoDB dynamically links to OpenSSL and therefore the product itself is not vulnerable and does not require an update to mitigate this vulnerability. Please be aware that OpenSSL/libssl should be updated on underlying systems, as directed by the specific distribution.
Customers who have created instances utilizing MongoDB’s AWS AMIs should upgrade their operating system’s OpenSSL/libssl libraries. Amazon’s instructions and notice can be found here.
