What is it?
Heartbleed is a recently uncovered security bug that is scaring internet users. Internet and security experts are warning people that their personal information, such as passwords, credit card information and emails are at risk.
The Heartbleed bug affects any sites and services running OpenSSL, an open-source encryption technology that is used in most web servers, VPN connections and email servers.
What do I have to do?
To protect user data and encryption keys, the companies hosting your websites must upgrade to the patched version of OpenSSL, revoke compromised SSL certificates and get new ones issued. These are issues that you need to discuss with your website hosting provider immediately. Once it is done, you can put a notice on your website that you have taken the steps necessary to correct the problem.
