F5 Security Gurus Discuss Heartbleed

Many major corporations and banks use F5 Application Delivery Controllers in their data centers to provide various security and load balancing services to their mission critical sites.

Fortunately, it seems that because F5 uses a custom version of OpenSSL there are only a few configurations where F5 devices would expose the vulnerability to backend servers running affected versions of OpenSSL. This should give the network gurus some time to update the certificates on affected systems.

In this video the F5 security team discusses the vulnerability and takes live questions from an online forum. (F5 is a former employer).
