Kali is Vulnerable to Heartbleed - How to Upgrade OpenSSL for Kali Linux

Kali Linux uses a version of OpenSSL that is vulnerable to the heartbleed attack. Your ram could be dumped as you use a terminal tool to connect to a malicious server.

Kali hasn't updated their repositories to include the updated version of OpenSSL yet, so I will walk you through the process of installing the updated version.

OpenSSL 1.0.1g download:
tar xzf openssl-1.0.1g.tar.gz

Terminal Commands:
openssl version
cd openssl-1.0.1g
./config --prefix=/usr --openssldir=/etc/ssl
