Not at the moment.  Our radius servers are also our campus DNS and DHCP servers.  All the more reason to keep them updated, but round here ....

Last night I built freeradius-2.2.9 on a RHEL6.4 box with openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6.x86_64.

So my build openssl went from 

  openssl-1.0.0-27.el6_4.2.x86_64  ->  openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6.x86_64

I also upgraded openssl on the radius server:

  openssl-1.0.1e-16.el6_5.7.x86_64  ->  openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6.x86_64

This morning I tried to fire up the new radius build on one of the radius servers but ran into the openssl check:

  Oct 16 06:41:31 net3 radiusd[5251]: Refusing to start with libssl version OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013 (in range 1.0.1 - 1.0.1f).  Security advisory CVE-2014-0160 (Heartbleed)
  Oct 16 06:41:31 net3 radiusd[5251]: For more information see

I recall we updated to openssl months ago due to heartbleed and am surprised an update of that update has re-introduced it.

I'm also surprised "openssl version" shows the same string for both openssl-1.0.1e-16.el6_5.7.x86_64 and openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6.x86_64:

  root at net4:/etc/opt/freeradius> rpm -qf /usr/bin/openssl
