in Blog & News

On April 7, 2014 a vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160) was discovered in the widely-used OpenSSL cryptography library that powers a vast majority of web sites around the world. This library is used to maintain security and privacy for users’ data and information transmitted across the network.

The vulnerability is known as Heartbleed and would allow an attacker to steal the keys that protect communication, user passwords, even the system memory of a vulnerable server. It represents a major risk to internet traffic on the Internet.

We are posting to notify all our customers that we are NOT affected or vulnerable to this attack as we are running an older version of OpenSSL. So data and information transferred through our site is not compromised.

We are actively monitoring the progress of this vulnerability and will keep you posted if further developments arise.
