The Heartbleed bug is a vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. The vulnerability applies to specific versions of the OpenSSL library.

Insert from URL
Send Mail via an SMTP Server
Import Records from an XML data source

How can I tell if the Heartbleed bug is a threat to my installation of FileMaker Go 13?
