LBN Security Bulletin – Heartbleed

computer virus heartbleed

Local Backhaul Networks is aware of the vulnerability, dubbed “Heartbleed”, which is a security concern for users of OpenSSL, a widely-used opensource cryptographic software library. It can allow attackers to read the memory of the systems using vulnerable versions of OpenSSL library (1.0.1 through 1.0.1f). This may disclose the secret keys of vulnerable servers, which allows attackers to decrypt and eavesdrop on SSL encrypted communications and impersonate service providers. In addition, other data in memory may be disclosed, which conceivably could include usernames and passwords of users or other data stored in server memory.

All OcularIP and W.O.O.D. Data Centers providing Customer Web Portals do not suffer from the Heartbleed vulnerability as described above. This means all users logging into the OcularIP or W.O.O.D. Customer Web Portals are secured and do not suffer from this identified vulnerability. We do recommend all users change their passwords following customer’s best practice policies.
