Public Service Announcement

“Heartbleed” is a security vulnerability in ubiquitous open source software used to implement secure communications with web servers. Because of this vulnerability, information you enter into a secure web page on an affected server might be accessible remotely. One security consultant said that on a seriousness scale from 1 to 10, “heartbleed is an 11.”
