OpenSSL / Heartbleed

Many of our members may have heard in the media about a flaw in a widely used piece of software called OpenSSL. We do not use SSL (what you'd see as "https" or the secure padlock sign) on Neopoet for members.

On April 8, shortly after the initial announcement, we examined whether we were affected. Based on this analysis, and from additional information we learned over recent days, we have no reason to believe any member information was compromised.

PayPal. which processes and stores sensitive financial information on our behalf, posted an announcement stating that accounts on PayPal are also secure.

who listens

what a trivial and dangerous oversight in SSL


and to all things artifice
and artifact
neo survives
