CanTrust Servers fully patched for HeartBleed bug

Submitted by ctadmin on Mon, 04/07/2014 - 23:42

A serious OpenSSL bug was revealed yesterday, the Heartbleed bug.   This bug affects versions of OpenSSL in many versions of Linux.  

We've upgraded all of our vulnerable servers as of 11:30PM, April 7th, 2014.    We have also notified all customers who were possibly affected by this problem.  Those customers should re-generate their SSL certs (ie. purchase new certificates) in order to be 100% certain that their encryption is secure.
