    Apr 9, 2014, 2:08 PM - Heartbleed - OpenSSL Vulnerability #1

    Over the past 24 hours, there has been a tremendous amount of news about a serious vulnerability in a secure communications library called OpenSSL, commonly referred to as “Heartbleed.” This vulnerability allows a third party to read supposedly secure, encrypted communication between a user and a server.


    Currently, The Dented Helmet infrastructure and support systems are not affected by this vulnerability and no user information has been compromised.


    When a vulnerability like this pops up, it’s often best to reset your password (and check that your account email is valid). Even if your account is secure here at The Dented Helmet, if you’re using the same password on a site that was compromised, your account may be at risk.


    We are continuing to monitor our servers and communications with third party services for any potential issues. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them up.
