Some users have been getting in touch with us to check whether their LANGuardian system is vulnerable to this bug - OpenSSL Vulnerability - HeartBleed.

As you may have been informed, a new bug in OpenSSL, nicknamed 'Heartbleed' has shown up and puts encrypted comms at risk. The flaw is contained in serveral versions of OpenSSL. Most web sites use either SSL or TLS, which is indicated in browsers with a padlock symbol.

Here is everything you need to know about the heartbleed bug:

There has been lots of talk about this on the Internet in the last few days:

To to eliminate any concern, LANGuardian is not susceptible to this vulnerability. Based on updates and comments published by OpenSSL and CentOS, LANGuardian systems are not affected by this flaw. Users do not need to take any action with LANGuardian and LANGuardian systems do not require a software update.

We will continue to monitor the situation carefully. Any changes will be updated on this site.
