OpenSSL HeartBleed — ouch

OpenSSL HeartBleed — ouch
April 10, 2014 GB

On April 7 2014 a serious vulnerability was discovered in the widely used OpenSSL software — this affected many (many!) web servers across the world, requiring urgent patching.

As a precaution, it is also strongly advised that all SSL Certificates be reissued and all users change their passwords on system that used OpenSSL.

All WP NET servers have had patches installed and tested, and we have also reissued all SSL certificates used on our domains, including the Plesk Panel.
