Hi HH,

I forwarded on your message to our IT Network team and received the below response.

"I see their comment, “This vulnerability probably won't affect you since you're on Windows.” … but I still don’t understand if that’s 100% true for anyone running Windows, since it is still running tomcat.

The KB they link to in that link you sent me (http://help.hannonhill.com/discussions/general/18142-heartbleed-bug... is the same as your original email from yesterday, I think), says:

To confirm that you are not using the native APR libraries, check your most recent catalina.log file (in tomcat/logs) and look for the following message on start-up:

INFO: The APR based Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal performance in production environments was not found on the java.library.path:{path}

Looking in the latest catalina.log file, I see no reference to the text “APR” … I don’t know if that’s good or bad."

How should we interpret our findings?

    Hi Craig,

    Unless you all specifically installed and configured those native APR libraries, you should be safe. Try using this site to see if your instance is vulnerable:


    Let me know if you have any further questions.
