Is Email Gateway (MEG) 7.6.x at risk from CVE-2015-1793?


MEG 7.6.x versions earlier than 7.6.400 RTS are Not Vulnerable to this issue, because these releases do not use the affected OpenSSL version.

IMPORTANT:  MEG 7.6.400 RTS (Build 3284.111) is vulnerable to this issue. 

This issue was resolved in 7.6.400.1 (7.6.400 RTW) and was included in all subsequent 7.6.x releases. MEG 7.6.400.1 and later is therefore not vulnerable to this issue.

McAfee recommends you upgrade to the latest version of MEG 7.6.4xx.
