Is Actiontec modem-router vulnerable to Heartbleed?

Does Heartbleed affect the Actiontec GT784WNV modem-router?

We have one from Verizon for our Verizon DSL.

If the Actiontec is affected, when will Verizon send a firmware update?

Has there been any official VZ response to this?

I've been told by Verizon the routers have been tested for Heartbleed and are not affected.

When trying to access my Verizon ActionTec router from INSIDE my private LAN (https://192.169.1.1), why is my security software alert me of an potential SSL Certificate compromise? 

My AntiVirus suite provides this alert: 

"Cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain to which encrypted connection is established

Application: Internet Explorer  (although the same occurs in Chrome),

URL:  ORname_Jungo: OpenRG Products Group

Reason:  (blank)"

Who is that URL and why is it on the Verizon router?

What you're seeing is probably an expired or a self signed certificate from the router. The router runs on Jungo (now Cisco) OpenRG with a Linux kernel at the heart.
