On April 7, security researchers discovered a serious bug in OpenSSL, the software that secures two-thirds of the world's websites. This vulnerability (nicknamed “[COLOR=#222222]Heartbleed”) has existed undetected since 2012 and potentially allowed attackers to retrieve private information on SSL encrypted servers.
Your UX Mastery hosted information was not vulnerable to this exploit and is safe.
* The version of OpenSSL UX Mastery uses to host uxmastery.com was not affected.
* We have updated our own credentials with affected third-parties.
These forums (hosted by vBulletin Cloud) don't use a TLS encrypted connection so aren't expected to be affected. We are awaiting a confirmation from vBulletin support about any vulnerabilities and will post here with an update once we have a response.
This is an Internet-wide issue. If you have web hosting services or login accounts with other providers we urge you to contact them ASAP to confirm they have secured your information.
If you have any questions about these matters, please read the comprehensive FAQ at
