UMBC Bookstore would like to reassure our customers that the data provided to us has not been affected by the Heartbleed Bug.
The vulnerability involved Open SSL, a technology used to secure websites, and was designed to allow hackers access to personal information like user names and passwords that would otherwise be encrypted
Our systems providers have evaluated the usage of OpenSSL in our application suite and determined that the versions used are not affected by the recent Heartbleed bug, so your information was never vulnerable to this potential threat. As a result, we’re confident that no user data on our servers has been compromised and no action is necessary on your part. If you have any questions or concerns you are always welcome to contact us about anything.
