Heartbleed bug
« on: April 15, 2014, 04:50:41 PM »
There has been a lot reported in the media and on the internet over the last few days about the Heartbleed bug.

The Heartbleed Bug is a vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information normally protected by this cryptography and can make names and passwords on some systems open to hackers.

The software used for the Vera Playa Friends website and forum does NOT use OpenSSL so is therefore safe from this particular bug.
