    How to find out if Phone is affected with Heartbleed

    I read some articles about the security issues going on now a days on web, particularly with OpenSSL servers. I am having a Sony smartphone running Android 4.1 Jellybean and those news says that this is the version which is mostly affected with Heartbleed. However, i didn't found any fix for this problem so far.

    But i wanted to know how do we come to know whether or not our Android phone is affected with Heartbleed? Is there any way like we can scan our computers and Antivirus generates a report showing the viruses or infection done? Is there any method i can scan my phone to confirm if the phone is affected so that i can change my passwords and all?

    Somebody please help.

    Fortunately, yes we have an application Heartbleed Detector using which we can atleast confirm whether the bug is compromised our smartphone or not because, unfortunately there is no fix yet available for the infected devices. If you want you can download Heartbleed Detector from here and run on your phone. It is just 209kb in size.

    There is nothing you or anybody else can do. If your phone is affected with Heartbleed, the only thing you can do is go to settings and run the system update. See if there is any new firmware update available by your phone's manufacturer. If yes, install it immediately and if not, then you just have to wait until they release some update with the fix of Heartbleed.
