By now I am sure many of you have heard about a vulnerability affecting more than half of the web servers that do secure online transactions (including but not limited to, logging into websites where you supply a username and password, sites that you may do purchasing on, etc.). This is due to many servers running an open source secure socket layer (SSL) software called OpenSSL. SSL software encrypts the connection between your device and the web server, so it cannot be decoded and exploited while in transit. At EOS we run two servers that do SSL transactions, and neither of them are affected by Heartbleed. One runs a completely different SSL software, and another runs a version of OpenSSL that is not affected by heartbleed (OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta are affected).
A few years ago a client wanted a redo of their website, with a bit more animation and rollovers than I had done before. Unfortunately this kind of customization doesn’t lend itself as well as I would like to a CMS like wordpress (which would have made updates substantially easier), but it worked well in the end.
