Heartbleed Supplemental Update

wp-hbFurther to yesterday’s update regarding our client websites and the upgrade that was rolled out, some of you may have noticed a pending update in your Dashboard for the Jetpack module.

This update, specifically required manual patching on a per-site basis which was completed for all client websites just moments ago.

Everything is safe and secure and there has been no compromised security.

We would again like to recommend at this time that you take the time to learn about heartbleed as it affects everyone who uses a password to access any secure website, such as Facebook, twitter, online banking, etc.

It may take a while and, admittedly it may be an exercise in futility considering the affected services and whether or not they were breached is not and will not be known unless evidenced by suspicious activity on any of your accounts. So the best policy is one of erring on the side of caution. Simply believing that you won’t likely be targeted because you are of the belief that no one cares about your data won’t be enough to fall back on in retrospect when it’s too late.

As always, we are here for you and willing to help. If you have any questions, please contact us.
