As you may have heard, many websites and services have a major security issue named “Heartbleed”
The short answer is that your information is safe, PBworks is not affected, and you do not need to take any actions (e.g. changing passwords).
If you are interested in the details, you can read on.
A major security bug, nicknamed “Heartbleed” was reported in the OpenSSL security cipher suite. OpenSSL is an open source library used by over 3/4ths of all web services, and it is used to protect the privacy of data transmitted over the internet.
Actions PBworks has taken
Within hours of the report of the bug, we performed a security vulnerability assessment of our system, and found that the version of OpenSSL used by our system is not vulnerable to this exploit.
What do you need to do?
At this time, you do not need to take any action. Your login, data, and passwords are safe, and have not been compromised.
What PBworks will continue to do
We believe that the security and integrity of your data is of the highest priority. We are taking further precautions to make sure that your data is safe on our service. We have also updated all our systems with the latest available security patches to the software and operating systems, and will continue to perform daily security audits.
