Heartbleed security flaw - BCA Web Server unaffected.

Post by David Cooke » Sat 19 Apr 2014 16:11

News of the Heartbleed Bug broke on the 8th April. For example see bbc.co.uk/news/technology-26969629.

This is a serious issue. You are well advised to update your passwords where appropriate.

The good news though is that the BCA Web Server is unaffected.

Whilst it does use the openSSL software, it doesn't uses a version, nor has it ever used a version that contains the Heartbleed Bug.

For more information on the Heartbleed Bug see heartbleed.com
