UPDATE: This thread has been closed from further replies.

 

As you may have heard, the OpenSSL Project issued a Security Advisory on April 7th. The alert was regarding a possible weakness in encryption software used by two-thirds of all web servers in the world. Nicknamed “Heartbleed”, the issue could potentially allow attackers to retrieve information from encrypted SSL endpoints. We take security very seriously, and as of 6pm UTC on April 9th we have completed the necessary fixes to eliminate these vulnerabilities. This includes patching all web infrastructure possibly affected by Heartbleed. The team has scanned our infrastructure and found no other points of potential vulnerability, and we’ll continue to actively monitor the situation. Although we have no evidence of any oDesk accounts being affected, as a precaution and best practice we do strongly recommend that you change your password. Thanks, Simon Yeo VP, Technical Operations

This is all very nice but how about stop implementing new things and fix the 1001 bugs that already exist. When you implement something new you invariable break 15 things that used to work. Please do some QA and regression testing and fix the things that have been broken for months now!!! Please pass this on to Simon Yeo.

hmmm... thanks for the advisory! Hackers nowadays are even more effective in hacking systems so for us not to be hacked one suggestion i have "change your password twice a week" it will not cost you a lot of time changing passwords. oh wait. “Heartbleed” BAD CHOICE of NAME . . . it is much better if they called it "*******"

This advice should have been sent also to my email inbox. Not all oDesk users visit this forum daily.

Agreed. Also needs to be more prominent on your website. I had to search the forums before finding out anything. It's not even on the blog.
