If you have OpenSSL installed on your Windows server, it probably came with another product. You'll need to look at the software you have installed, identify which product uses OpenSSL, then reach out to the vendor to obtain an update.  I would not recommend just compiling your own version of SSL unless you know what options and/or libraries you need for your software.


You can also just check to see if Heartbeat is disabled.  You do this by opening a command prompt and changing directory to where openssl.exe is on your system.  Then execute the following:


openssl.exe version -a


If you see -DOPENSSL_NO_HEARTBEATS listed under the compiler options then you don't really have to worry about it right now.

If your version of OpenSSL was installed using Cygwin (32-bit), the latest version available is 1.0.1g.  If you obtained OpenSSL via Cygwin, you should upgrade thru their installer.  This will only upgrade OpenSSL installs made thru Cygwin, not other installs.
