3Play Media Safe from the Heartbleed Bug
Updated: January 4, 2018
We’re sure you’ve been hearing a lot about the Heartbleed Bug over the past week or so, and we wanted to let you know that 3Play Media was not vulnerable to the bug. 3Play Media uses an older version of openSSL that was not susceptible, so there is no danger of having been exposed. To be specific, 3Play Media uses version 0.9.8; the bug appears in versions 1.0.1a-1.0.1f.
We’re fortunate that 3Play Media was not vulnerable to Heartbleed, but if you’re wondering if other sites and services you use have been compromised, CNet has compiled a list of the top 100 websites in the US, along with each one’s patch status. The safest way to know if a site was compromised is to get confirmation from one of its official channels.
If you find out you have been using a site that has been compromised, be aware that there are probably scammers out there who will be trying to take advantage of the situation. Do not respond to emails inviting you to reset your password. You should first make sure that the site you’re using has patched the issue, and then you should go directly to the site and reset your password there.
