Important Alert: Heartbleed Virus

Important Alert: Heartbleed Virus

The Heartbleed virus affects websites that use Open SSL for authentication. This vulnerability can be exploited to intercept encryption keys, user names, passwords and other sensitive information, before it is encrypted.  According to estimates, this bug could affect around two-thirds of web servers, including popular websites, email, social networks, even VPNs. Fortunately, not all versions of OpenSSL are vulnerable to this kind of exploit.

We’ve provided a list below of the most popular websites, their current status and suggested remediation. It’s up to the site in question to first fix the vulnerability. If a site you use every day is affected, it’s best not to log into it until it’s been patched. If the bug hasn’t been fixed, changing your old password to a new password would just result in your new password being susceptible

We suggest you take the following actions to protect yourself:

  1. Review the list below and follow the recommended remediation for that particular website
  2. If you use an Android device, we suggest you install Lookout’s Heartbleed Detector to determine if you device is using an affected version of Open SSL.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact ACE IT Solutions at (646) 558-5575 or
