Dear Sierra Central Member,
During the past 36 hours, you may have heard of the recent trending ‘HeartBleed Bug’ cyber security vulnerability that has caused concerns across the Internet. Although recently glorified, Security Researchers who uncovered the threat are particularly worried about the lapse because it went undetected for more than two years.
HeartBleed is a security vulnerability in OpenSSL, a popular, open-source protocol used to encrypt vast portions of the web. It's used to protect your usernames, passwords, and sensitive information set on secure websites. However, please note that Sierra Central platform DOES NOT employ ‘OpenSSL’ for secure HTTPS connections, and rest assured that neither SCCU nor our clients are exposed or impacted by this vulnerability.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF:
It is always recommended that users should change their passwords, and temporarily avoid any site that is known to be vulnerable.
Stay Protected, Opt-In for SCCU Courtesy Pay!
