Software Update: FileMaker Server 13.0v1a | FileMaker

FILEMAKER SERVER 13.0V1A FIXES the Heartbleed vulnerability:

Software Description

The installer software installs FileMaker® Server 13.0v1a for Windows and OS X. The updater software updates version 13.0v1 of FileMaker Server to version 13.0v1a.

This software, which addresses the “Heartbleed” bug, is applicable for FileMaker Server installations that use the “Require secure connections” setting configured on the Database Server > Security tab in FileMaker Server Admin Console.  If your FileMaker Server installation has never used secure connections and you never plan for it to, you don’t need to apply this software.

Software Details

Updates in FileMaker Server 13.0v1a

This software addresses an issue where the OpenSSL library used by FileMaker Server 13.0v1 was vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.

  • FileMaker Server 13.0v1a includes OpenSSL 1.0.1g, which is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. In addition, the TLS heartbeat in OpenSSL is disabled, which removes the attack method used by the Heartbleed bug.
  • FileMaker Server 13.0v1a includes an updated default SSL certificate.

It is possible that FileMaker passwords may become compromised due to a Heartbleed bug exploit. We recommend that you change all passwords, including Admin Console and database passwords, after installing FileMaker Server 13.0v1a.

Replacing the default SSL certificate

After applying this software, if you do not have a signed SSL certificate that matches your specific server name, request a certificate from a trusted certificate authority (CA) supported by FileMaker, Inc.  If you previously obtained a signed SSL certificate, contact your CA to revoke your existing certificate and request a new certificate.

For instructions, see the FileMaker Server Help topic “Securing your data.”
