We have tried to http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/ web page and found that we hit the valnurability.
Please help. We could not find any info on ARUBA.
Also, according to debian (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=743883) all private keys should be changed immediately!
good question, im currently wondering the same and would appriciate a reaction from Aruba.
of course best thing to do is open a support case, but still an announcement by Aruba would help to prevent everyone from doing that :)
btw: rdemir could you add Heartbleed to your subject, makes it easier for other to see it.
ın fact we urged aboutthe situation to our Aruba support for Turkey and they will look tomorrow. We tested and it shows vulnerable and
show verAruba Operating System Software.ArubaOS (MODEL: Aruba6000), Version 18.104.22.168Website: http://www.arubanetworks.comCopyright (c) 2002-2014, Aruba Networks, Inc.Compiled on 2014-03-18 at 14:06:13 PDT (build 42768) by p4build

It seems ClearPass and ArubaOS are impacted:
seems to be version dependent, got a 6.2.5 version which doesnt seem affected.
airwave 7.6.3 neither.
That test is ClearPass 6.2.5. We have tested with ArubaOS 126.96.36.199 and it seems to be vulnerable.
I'm wondering if FreeRADIUS within ClearPass is also vulnerable.
How do you test ArubaOS version?
@tmarques wrote:How do you test ArubaOS version? Regards,Tony Marques
what do you exactly mean? you can test it via the webinterface, that is the part that probably uses OpenSSL.
if you webinterface isnt reachable via the internet you already excluded a big attack surface. within your own network you might be able to restrict access only from a management subnet.
to test internal you can use the PoC python script or use this openssl command: openssl s_client -connect google.com:443 -tlsextdebug and look for the server extension heartbeat string in the begin.
You will probably be vulnerable when:
* You are using a captive portal which is running on the controller and/or ClearPass
* You are using the controller for VIA
Aruba controllers are also impacted.
One POC run against a 7220 controllers running 188.8.131.52 returned back what looks to be part of an XML configuration file and at least CA information for the pub/priv key combination that ships as the default cert on the controllers.
I went into our Airwave 7.7.10 system and ran "yum update" which installed a patched openssl via CentOS upstream and the POC fails against it.
I'm the security product manager at Aruba. Please note that this is not a formal communication, we will be posting a formal communication on our website according to our security policy shortly. That update will be posted here - http://www.arubanetworks.com/support-services/security-bulletins/
We are still assessing our exposure to this vulnerability, but it clearly impacts AOS 6.3.x and AOS 6.4.x. We are working on updates to these as I type this, with the intention of publishing them as soon as we can finish and complete testing.
Until then, reducing access to the web GUI via control plane ACLs makes sense. Other steps to limit exposure will be published as they are identified, and included in the security bulletin.
We are doing a careful analysis of the impact - the problem with this attack is that it gives the attacker access to some parts of the memory of the attacked system. The advice on the internet to change all private keys is based on the fear that the key could be in this segment of memory. We're validating whether or not this is the case, but you will have to decide your organization's tolerance to this particular risk.
Thanks for your understanding, and we'll keep you informed.
We have also done a POC where we were able to get the session-id from a logged-in Web-GUI user and then use that session-id to get access to the management console of the controller.
This is quite serious, limiting exposure of the controller's webserver is key here.
Which version had this behaviour? This is completely different than the curren SSL vunlerability and it is something we've done several patches to fix.
This is at ArubaOS 184.108.40.206. Drop me an e-mail at arjan [at] securelink DOT nl if you want the output from ssltest.py.
@ hdemir: you can use the control plane firewall for this. This is "firewall cp" in the CLI.
i got this from aruba:
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Dear Aruba Networks Customer/Partner:
The purpose of this advisory is to address an important issue that affects Aruba Products that use the OpenSSL 1.0.1 Library.
Advisory Number 040814
OpenSSL 1.0.1 library (Heartbleed) vulnerability.
There is a very serious vulnerability that has been discovered in the OpenSSL 1.0.1 library. This vulnerability can allow an external attacker to extract segments of memory from a remote system without leaving any traces. This memory could contain vital security information, including private keys. These keys, in turn, could be used to mount a man-in-the-middle attack.
— ArubaOS 6.3.x, 6.4.x
— ClearPass 6.1.x, 6.2.x, 6.3.x
Previous versions of these products used an earlier version of OpenSSL
that is not vulnerable. No other Aruba products, including AirWave, Instant,
run these compromised versions of OpenSSL. Aruba Central, Aruba Network’s
cloud-based Wi-Fi offering, upgraded their web infrastructure to the latest,
safe, version of OpenSSL on April 7 after the attack was first published.
OpenSSL is a very widely used library, and this vulnerability is likely to
affect many systems and websites. Aruba Networks uses this library in
different products to secure communications between our infrastructure and
various clients. This bug is in OpenSSL's implementation of the TLS/DTLS
(transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520).
When exploited it leads to the leak from the server to the client.
In some cases it has been demonstrated that key material may be part of
this memory leak.
This vulnerability was announced through CVE-2014-0160.
OpenSSL is used in a variety of ways in Aruba products, including:
* HTTPS communications via the Administrative Web GUI
* HTTPS communications via Captive Portals
* Secure RADIUS communication
* Secure communication with some third party APIs
CVSS v2 Base Score:5.0 (MEDIUM) (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
As always, Aruba Networks recommends that best security practices are
followed, including reduction of possible attack surface areas by use
of access control methods such as network-level ACLs to restrict access.
However, given the ubiquitous use of OpenSSL, this may not completely
protect your infrastructure.
Aruba Networks will be publishing patch releases for the effected products
by EOB April 10, 2014. We recommend that all customers upgrade to these
Given that there is a chance that key material may already
have been compromised, we are further advising customers to consider
replacing your certificates after the upgrade is completed.

Thanks for the tip. We ask this for a long time from aruba and nobody tell about this feature. We will futher investigate how to use this "firewall cp".
Please note the control plane firewall was added in ArubaOS 6.3.
Thanks for the info. I would like to remind the need for the "Management ACL" infrastructure for easy management. If we had such a function in ArubaOS;
will suffice to protect the controller.
Where in the Aruba Support Center -> Download software I need to go to download the pach?
The pach is a OS update?
Update is released...
it's in the support center...
Has anyone upgraded to ArubaOS 220.127.116.11 yet and if so any issues they've encountered with this new release?
i upgraded already and all went smooth !
the only changes in this firmware is the sec-fix
Just to clarify, we're talking WLAN controller OS not ClearPass correct?
Yes, i'm talking about the controller OS
I aplogize, I meant to ask if anyone has upgraded to controller OS 18.104.22.168.
well, i uograded to controller os 22.214.171.124 ;-)
We tried and it not not working now? We are working on it to get back online again.
We have seen RADIUS can vulnerable to the OpenSSL heartbleed bug as well.
You can extract upto 1KB of memory from the RADIUS server. Also see the announcement from FreeRADIUS: http://freeradius.org/security.html - ClearPass is using FreeRADIUS under the hood.
So patch up! Upgrade/update your ClearPass :)
I dont see any download link on the support site. Is there a diret link to download the patch?
Also the hyperlink in your message for support.arubanetworks.com takes it to the email login for Aruba instead of the support site.
I am not sure how this can be the solution when it is not!
Hi Troy, I dont have an account and just registered on the support site, which might take time.
I already checked the CPPM for updates and didn't see it there and then I landed here for direct links.
did you click Check status now on the CPPM it will show up if you have a valid subscription ID. there are no direct downloads unless you have a support account.
Hi Troy, I didn't try Check Now before as the last checked time was coming up as todays date.
After your message, I also clicked on Check Now and still it didn't show the 6.2.6 update available.
It worked, thanks!
Which version of OpenSSL was CPPM and ArubaOS patched to? As their seems to be further information indicating an issue that requires an upgrade to v 1.0.1h. Are further patches likely to be made available?
Link for OpenSSL advisory notice: http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20140605.txt
Oops! So it was. Thanks Troy
This all seems a little confusing. My Aruba controller is running 126.96.36.199_40034 We are not using Clearpass.
The only patches I am aware off are for Clearpass. Do I need to upgrade/patch my controller? Please can you link direct to the location of the patch.
I have allocated downtime this evening to carry out the fix, so I would appreciate someone getting back to me ASAP.
Yes, you should upgrade. The patch is part of the 188.8.131.52 code
