PheromoneXS Statement on The Heartbleed Bug


  • PheromoneXS Statement on The Heartbleed Bug

    Hey everyone,
    just wanted to let you know that The Heartbleed bug was patched a few hours after its release(2 days ago).
    As you know we always keep our servers and platforms secure and updated

    The Heartbleed is a defect in OpenSSL, a core cryptographic library that is used to protect communications on the Internet. This flaw affects a substantial number of applications and services running on the Internet.

    We have no evidence that PheromoneXS and DiscoverXS user credentials were compromised, but recommend that our customers change their passwords as a precautionary measure.

    Due to the widespread nature of this vulnerability, we recommend changing your passwords across the web too.

    For mobiles Google recently announced that andoid phones running Android OS newer than 4.1.1 are immune to this security flaw, but you should change your gmail login as soon as possible.

      From what our Bad-Ass Technical Mater, Mr. Idle explained to me this never really was an issue to us. I remember him going to some exceptional processes to make sure some "bug" that I never even heard of was corrected. I thought he was being a little paranoid until two days later. Then the proverbially hit the fan! My news-feed was bombardedwith this heartbleed thing so like I usually do I forwarded them to Idle.

      I really thought I had found something that Idle wasn't aware of because he never mentioned heartbleed the day he had fixed it. I thought that was just him keeping a lockdown on our server like he normally does. So to my surprise and much delight he said this is what he had already patched two days prior.

      I wanted everyone to know just how amazing Idle is, not to blow smoke, but to ensure you that you can rest easy knowing he is on the job. This guy updates every little thing like always. I'm kind of easy-going on stuff like updates, but I get it. The guy is a champ and we are fortunate to have him as a part of our community.

      There's a lot of out there but we have and to make

      Wow thanks Steve

      So you finally agree with me that paranoid is a good thing when it comes to server security
      Sorry if anyone anytime experienced weird errors or problems for no reason(in the recent years) but this was coming from the overprotective security settings.

      as for the heart bleed
      when it was patched it was just knows as CVE-2014-0160
      At first i mention to Steve that another serous part of the server needs patching
      but he hears this almost every day along and does not pay attention to my stuff
      (he just know that something somewhere somehow was fixed and we have it)
      His reaction was funny the next day when Heart bleed blew out the news

      So here is another helpful image that is floating around

    XS199 Comply is now available in the USA PXS store. I did my best to keep the costs down on this one, but it has some pretty expensive molecules so you'll notice its a little bit more expensive than others in its class.
