We wanted to provide a formal update regarding the recently discovered Heartbleed SSL vulnerability. The issue is a bug in the widely-used OpenSSL library that enables an attacker to gain access to private keys that allow the attacker to steal data and eavesdrop on communication that should have remained private. It is a significant bug with widespread ramifications across the Internet.
The Good News, however, is:
None of Social Strata's services are affected by this vulnerability: Hoop.la, QuestionShark, UBB Forum, Eve Community, FeePod, or Hoo.do.
Thus, your data is safe and was never at risk of compromise. If Social Strata's services had been affected, it would have only applied to sites that are using SSL (HTTPS) to encrypt all communication. If your site uses HTTP, then traffic is generally not encrypted and thus this vulnerability would not have been applicable.
If you have any questions about this, please do let us know!
