We’ve received increased questions recently about our response to the HeartBleed bug, which is a security vulnerability recently discovered in the OpenSSL software library. Many popular web apps, including ours, use OpenSSL.
We took immediate action on Tuesday, April 8 with an emergency security upgrade, which you can read more about here. During the update, we patched all servers, and changed all our SSL certificates and application encryption key.
For peace of mind, we do recommend that users change their passwords on all popular web apps, including ManageBac.
You can also check your school’s ManageBac account here to verify that no security holes remain:
Security issues will always be our top priority. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us if you have additional concerns about our response to HeartBleed.
