iHEA & the new "Heartbleed" Bug

iHEA websites have been tested to ensure they are not susceptible to the new OpenSSL “Heartbleed” bug (CVE-2014-0160), a serious security vulnerability affecting many websites. Our servers get an A+ rating on the Qualys SSL Labs Server Test which includes tests for the Heartbleed vulnerability (we have verified this with other testing utilities as well).

More info on the bug can be found in this New York Times article.

As precautionary measures, we generated new private keys and TLS security certificates, as well as invalidated old session IDs and cookies. This is in addition to our use of Forward Secrecy, HTTP Strict Transport Security, secure cookies, and other industry best practices.

We will be keeping a close eye on this vulnerability and making any precautionary changes necessary. If you have any questions or concerns about this --or any other security issues-- please don’t hesitate to email Patrick at admin@healtheconomics.org. Anyone needing to reset their password, can request a reset link from this page
