"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As of Jan 28th 2015, every appliance and ESXi host is vulnerable.

As soon as it's fixed, VMware will release patches, another patch hit the streets yesterday VMware vCenter Server 5.5 Update 2d (27 Jan 2015)

2d is patch for openssl holes and makes paranoid memory non-deduplication optional. There are couple of others, namely ones dealing with stability of vmscsi...
All suse and centos based solution (like admin appliance, vcenter appliance) machines are 100% vulnerable.

They now stated that they have vulnerable library shipped, though they dont use the vulnerable functions.
So no need to patch if you do not have 3rd party agents. If you have vendor modules installed - ask them... Without them you are safe.
