Heartbleed Heads up!

UZH-IT Services informed on April 9th on their website that their services had not been affected by heartbleed as the bug in the cryptoframework open SSL was named. These are indeed good News!


IT-specialists suggest that private users should proactively change their Passwords as heartbleed might have affected up to 18 percent of the webservers using SSL worldwide. Among them certain banks and large Services such as Yahoo etc. The bug allows stealing the information protected by SSL encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging and some VPNs. The bug compromises the secret keys used to identify the Service providers and to encrypt traffic, the names and passwords of users and the actual content.
