Yesterday, an OpenSSL exploit was announced, that potentially allowed attackers to read information from secured servers. As 88 Miles uses Amazon Web Services, it was susceptible to the exploit. So what does this mean for you?
Not much really.
Realistically, you would have only been at risk if you added or changed your credit card details in the past 24 hours, or if you logged in (not just opened 88 Miles, but actually used the login screen).
If someone was sniffing around on the server while the exploit was active, they could have viewed data that was being transferred. However, it would take a lot of work to reassemble all the bits to make use of that data. As such, the risk is pretty low.
If you are feeling worried about it, I’d suggest logging out and logging back in to 88 Miles. If you are really worried, try changing your password – and if you see any weird activity on your account, let us know.
We have also updated our secure certificates as a precaution. If you ever log in to one of the secure pages on 88 Miles, and you see a warning about an expired certificate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
Just be assured that the risk for 88 Miles is very low, but if you have any questions, please let me know.
