Many of our clients have been asking if they should be concerned about the The Heartbleed Bug and their website.  Our answer is no.  WRIS does not use the OpenSSL cryptographic software library and fortunately hosts 99% of our sites on a platform that is not susceptible to this bug.  Our outsourced partner for shared cPanel servers patched their servers on 4/9/14 to prevent any issues with the known Heartbleed bug.

Google Apps, Gmail users should not need to take any action. Google has issued a statement indicating they have patched Gmail and are confident that they did so before any damage could be done. To find out more about The Heartbleed Bug, please visit heartbleed.com.
