Is FATdrop affected by the “Heartbleed” security problem?

If you’ve been following the technical news in the last few days, you’ll have heard about a widespread security problem in some versions of the OpenSSL library’s “heartbeat” function. The security problem is being referred to as the “Heartbleed” bug.

FATdrop has not been affected by this bug; while we do use OpenSSL to secure our login pages, we were not and are not running any of the versions of OpenSSL affected by this problem. So your FATdrop login credentials are still safe – but if you believe you can never be paranoid enough when it comes to security, you can change your login password at any time.
