Heartbeat is the least of your issues. You're running an old version of Ubuntu that hasn't received security updates since January. You need to upgrade immediately. See the close message for more information. –  Oli Apr 10 at 0:49
Even going back to 12.04 (LTS, so supported until 2017) would be better than poddling around on 13.04. –  Oli Apr 10 at 1:00
I don't think Ubuntu is supporting this release. Here are the list of releases it officially announced.I don't think it is a stable release of Ubuntu. wiki.ubuntu.com/Home –  Sai Apr 10 at 8:10
Just wondering, how is being unsupported by Ubuntu makes such a question offtopic? –  user138589 Apr 10 at 13:48

First and foremost, and as a matter of urgency, upgrade (or downgrade) to a supported version of Ubuntu.

In the interim, if you can not upgrade right away, then this is what I did:

I used the patched openssl and libssl version from Quantal Quetzal 12.10:


wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/openssl_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_amd64.deb \
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libssl1.0.0_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_amd64.deb \
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/libssl1.0.0_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_i386.deb \

sudo dpkg -i openssl_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_amd64.deb \
libssl1.0.0_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_amd64.deb \
libssl1.0.0_1.0.1c-3ubuntu2.7_i386.deb \

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

I then revoked the old certificates and regenerated new ones.
