Email from Google Play regarding OpenSSL

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Sat Jun 14, 2014 8:11 pm


Can anybody shed any light on this email I received from Google Play regarding OpenSSL ? - See copy of email below.

Specifically :-

1. I don't think anything in the game requires SSL and I didn't knowingly add anything that would need a secure connection.

2. If I didn't add it to the game what did and how do I update it?

3. Is there actually a problem, or is this just Google using a scatter gun approach to remove any potential heart bleed problems from their Google Play store?

4. Does the problem stem from my own PC?

5. The game was compiled using the Intel XDK, does this have any known problems?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks


One or more of your apps is running an outdated version of OpenSSL, which has multiple security vulnerabilities. You should update OpenSSL as soon as possible. For more information about the most recent security vulnerability in OpenSSL, please see

Please note, while it's unclear whether these specific issues affect your application, applications with vulnerabilities that expose users to risk of compromise may be considered “dangerous products” and subject to removal from Google Play.

Possible that the wrapper you used to create the apk has it on by default, try exporting it with a newer version or a different wrapper?
