No Heartbleed Bug Here

By April 20, 2014 No Comments

We’ve had a number of enquiries in regards to the announcement of the recently discovered high priority security vulnerability code named the “Heartbleed Bug“.

Here at SBIM we take server security very seriously and conduct regular security checks and work to address security vulnerabilities to protect our customer’s websites and email. We also conduct ad hoc tests if a security threat, such as the Heartbleed bug, is brought to our attention. Accordingly, our hosting engineers have tested for Heartbleed and have confirmed that our servers are not vulnerable to this threat.

The Heartbleed bug is currently impacting the open source software OpenSSL, which is used to encrypt web communications. The vulnerability can allow attackers to access encrypted data and communications. The version of OpenSSL we use on our servers is not either of the versions impacted by the vulnerability.

Just to make sure, you can use this tool to check whether your site is vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. If you have reason to believe your site is vulnerable, you can contact us on 07 3325 0505 or submit a ticket at [email protected]
