Heartbleed Security Vulnerability
A widely reported critical security flaw, called “Heartbleed,” was discovered that put much of the Internet’s security infrastructure at risk. The vulnerability is a developing threat worldwide. One possible consequence of this flaw is that attackers can easily steal information exposed on vulnerable websites and systems. Systems you may use on campus as well as outside of campus in your professional or personal life may be at risk. Some websites and Internet services not associated with the campus have already fixed this vulnerability, and for others, it will take longer.
