I just wanted to create a quick post to let you know that HP just released a fix for the OpenSSL Heartbleed bug for LoadRunner 11.52. Because OpenSSL is a 3rd party product that is embedded with LR, to be safe, HP is releasing this patch.

This LoadRuner patch includes an update that fixes the infamous security bug named Heartbleed.
