It was recently revealed that the Heartbleed bug, a vulnerability in the OpenSSL program that powers encrypted communication to many of the world's web sites and private networks, may have affected as many 500,000 systems.
It was recently announced to customers that ANX were not affected because the versions of SSL ANX uses were not vulnerable to the bug.
"We initiated both internal and external scans with neither scans showing a compromise in our system's vulnerability," said Jim Schmidt, ANX Executive Vice President of Operations.
So why is this a big deal? The bug could expose any data that the OpenSSL process can read. This means usernames, passwords, private keys and even credit card and social security numbers could be easily accessible.
