Immiguru and Immigo Safe From HeartBleed Security Flaw
We are pleased to inform our clients that OpenSSL has been patched on our servers and, therefore neither Immiguru nor Immigo are vulnerable to the so-called HeartBleed security flaw announced this week.
What is HeartBleed?
As you may be aware, researchers announced on Monday the discovery of a massive security vulnerability affecting OpenSSL, an encryption method used by the majority of web services. The threat to personal data such as passwords and financial details is serious, and the majority of web users may have been affected.
For more information see this explainer.
Web users are advised to change their passwords for online services which store their financial or other sensitive information, and which have confirmed that they are not vulnerable to HeartBleed.
It is also strongly recommended to avoid using the same password for more than one site.
How is Immiguru secure?
We have upgraded OpenSSL on all our servers to the latest secure, patched version, so our systems are not vulnerable to this attack.
There is no evidence that anyone’s Immiguru passwords have been stolen, and we have seen no unusual activity in our logs. However, if you are concerned, you can change your password by clicking on the padlock icon in the Immiguru toolbar on the top right.
For Immigo beta users, changing your Immiguru password also changes your Immigo password.
We hope our users are reassured by our response to this issue. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns you might have.
