HeartBleed

Some of you may heard in the news about a new SSL security threat called “heartbleed”.

Heart bleed is a flaw with a technology called “Open SSL”. Many websites on the web use Open SSL to encrypt traffic going to and from the sites. This security flaw makes it possible for someone to see this web traffic.

The concern becomes people obtaining the username and passwords people use to login to these sites.

Here at Clearview, our web servers are all running Microsoft internet Information Services (IIS). IIS does not use Open SSL so we do not have to be concerned here, but you may want to change your passwords to websites such as Facebook, Gmail, Flickr and many others at home.

Here are two different links to tools that you can use to test to see if a particular website has this security flaw.
