Would Syspeace help against Heartbleed OpenSSL bug ?

In short, no.

Syspeace monitors failed logins on MS Exchange,Windows Server, Sharepoint, Rremote desktop, Citrix and evaluates if it is a bruteforce attack against the system or not.

However, if an attacker has gained access to passwords and usernames he or she will use those and be able to log in. From the systems point of view it is a fully legitimate login thus not awakening Syspeace.

The nearest days, sysadmins around the world will be upgrading their systems to the secured OpenSSL but for you as an enduser it is highly recommended to change all of your passwords .
Remember to use strong passwords and never use the same password on different sites.

Here’s a blogpost that might be of use for you to remember complex online passwords.
