RSS Subscribe OpenSSL Vulnerability - Patches for CPanel servers.
Posted on 09/04/14 06:58PM

Our upstream providers are applying patches to the CPanel servers, in response to the vulerability related to OpenSSL. Clients on our Auckland based non CPanel servers are not affected by this.

A vulnerability, called Heartbleed, was recently identified impacting many platforms that use OpenSSL, including the CPanel servers. Potentially millions of servers are affected by this. Nicknamed "Heartbleed" the weakness allows anyone on the Internet to steal information normally protected by SSL/TSL encryption. The bug compromises the secret keys used to identify the provider and encrypt traffic, allowing potential attackers to eavesdrop on communications and impersonate services and users.

As soon as our providers became aware of the issue,  they began working to patch it.
