SSL/TLS “heartbleed” vulnerability patched for all Prey services

HeartbleedThe whole internet was affected by a major security vulnerability, known as Heartbleed. It was disclosed yesterday, so you might already know about the bug, which allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software, the technology used to encrypt most of the internet, including us.

But rest safe. Our engineers already implemented the patch for heartbleed, and there’s no evidence of any security breach. Nonetheless, since this affected almost the whole web, we think it’s a clever idea to change all your passwords. You never know what sites were breached, and how long they will take to fix this major bug.

Check this StackExchange thread to know more about how Heartbleed works. You can also run this test to check what sites are still vulnerable.
