News from Tech Help! :
- Heartbleed Virus
The Heartbleed bug, a newly discovered security vulnerability that puts users’ passwords at many popular Web sites at risk, has upended the Web since it was recently. It’s an extremely serious issue, and as such, there’s a lot of confusion about the bug and its implications as you use the Internet.
Heartbleed is a security vulnerability in OpenSSL software that lets a hacker access the memory of data servers. According to Netcraft, an Internet research firm, 500,000 Web sites could be affected. That means a user’s sensitive personal data — including usernames, passwords, and credit card information is potentially at risk of being intercepted.
IT has performed a comprehensive assessment of all FIT resources and our partner sites. Any issues have been remediated.
However, members of the FIT Community are encouraged to check with their personal organizations to ensure they have taken all necessary steps to protect your security credentials
