Heart bleed?
#1 Submitted: Sat, 12/04/2014 - 11:48

So I'm just sitting here eating my breakfast reading Google technology news & I spot an article about 'Heart bleed' which is apparently a SERIOUS issue for online security worldwide and has been for 2 years without anybody realizing.

Just doing my bit & highlighting this on the off chance that Carmageddon.com is vulnerable! I tried testing the site using this tool but didn't get a result either way...

I will have Shane take a look at it.
I am not capable enough to judge this but he will be.

Thanks,

Hey The Urban Spaceman, the carma website is unaffected by the Heart bleed bug though it is still recommended to change your passwords - especially if you use the same password with different websites.

Passwords. That's a fine idea for a new topic :)
