heartbleedThe Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.

We ran all the necessary tests and determined that we were venerable trough our SSL. Once we discovered that hard truth fact, we immediately patched our server with the latest updates and rechecked all of our software. After the patch our server returned several repeatable reports that the patch worked and our server was once again secured. This ONLY affected! Any future client wishing to use SSL on their site for ecommerce will not have to worry about this bug because it has been squished and thrown in the trash.
