Security update – Heartbleed exploit

We have checked and we are unaffected by this exploit.

Anniversaryideas is aware of the vulnerability, dubbed “Heartbleed”, which is a security concern for users of OpenSSL, a widely-used opensource cryptographic software library. It can allow attackers to read the memory of the systems using vulnerable versions of OpenSSL library (1.0.1 through 1.0.1f). This may disclose the secret keys of vulnerable servers, which allows attackers to decrypt and eavesdrop on SSL encrypted communications and impersonate service providers. In addition, other data in memory may be disclosed, which conceivably could include usernames and passwords of users or other data stored in server memory.

To be clear, this is a vulnerability of the OpenSSL library, and not a flaw with SSL/TLS nor certificates used by Anniversaryideas.co.uk
