Will Heartbleed have any effect on Forumotion?

Post by Wmanidi on April 10th 2014, 4:06 am

With the Heartbleed vulnerability sweeping all major news outlets this week, I just want to make sure this will have no effect on Forumotion sites.

For those unaware Heartbleed is a two year old vulnerability in the OpenSSL library. I am not even sure that Forumotion uses it, I just want to be safe. It is an easy fix, but if not fixed is extremely dangerous.

I did some research and noticed that the researchers said that it should be fixed. The only thing is the websites who use the library will have to update to the fix. This effects many websites (banking, Youtube, Yaho, etc.).

The problem is fixed, it's just that forumotion needs to apply the fix IMMEDIATELY or we have a serious problem. If we do use the library, which I am not sure of, it needs to be dealt with ASAP.

This is a different kind exploit that shouldn't be effected by http or https. In addition I cannot access my forumotion site nor a couple others I tried with https
