Hi @User27622125 

You must patch the 'target IP' system like a Web Server or a Database Server. It is always recommended to have the required patches applied on both the target & attacker IP.

Hi User27622125

What is the Vulnerability Alert you are seeing?

Are both of the machines on your internal network, belonging to you?

I would assume you need to patch the target, but if they are both your machines you should patch them both for any vulnerabilities.

Dear Peter,

vulnerability name is : Open SSL after use

openssl version is currently 1.1.0a and i want to upgrade it to version 1.1.0b Now both machines belong to my network and there are two scenarios in this case:

1.Both machines are server

2.One is client and one is server

Should i need to patch both machines in case 1 and in case 2 i will patch only one machine?
