Heartbleed OpenSSL Vulnerability
Earlier this week a vulnerability was discovered that impacts the security of many websites on the internet. The security bug is called Heartbleed and is found in websites that use OpenSSL, a specific type of website encryption that protects passwords and sensitive information on those sites.
AFBA systems do not use the OpenSSL software which would make them susceptible to the Heartbleed bug. AFBA continuously monitors our systems and network and we have no indication that our systems have been impacted as a result of the Heartbleed bug.
