Hi,

Does anyone know if VMWare ever released a patch to address the Open SSL man-in-the-middle vulnerability described in  CVE-2014-0224 for ESX 4.1?  All I've been able to find on The Google are references to patches released for ESX 5.5.  Is there something I'm missing?  I'd like to resolve that issue on our ESX 4.1 servers but I'm not looking to have to move all of them up to 5.5.

Thanks!
Matt
