2014-04-09: OpenSSL Heartbleed bug
It is being widely reported that some recent versions of openssl have a serious bug. If your computers (especially your servers) are using a version of openssl between 1.0.1 and 1.0.1f, you should upgrade them to openssl 1.0.1g as soon as possible. Since this openssl bug has been around for 2 years, you should probably consider your certificates to be compromised.

Burp windows clients were using openssl 1.0.1e. I understand that it is a possibility that a malicious server could steal client information.
I have therefore updated the Windows burp-depkgs with openssl-1.0.1g and built updated Windows installers for burp-1.3.48 and burp-1.4.12. These installers can be found via the downloads page.
