Is Event Wizard affected by Heartbleed?

Apr 10, 2014    By: Mark Turner


On Tuesday April 8th many media outlets reported on the potentially damaging effects of an internet security vulnerability known as the Heartbleed bug or (CVE-2014-0160). This vulnerability poses severe implications for the entire Web and allows remote users to access memory on the system where the vulnerability exists.

The problems that have come to surface around this bug have to do with exposure when using OpenSSL. OpenSSL is software code that protects the privacy of sensitive details (such as banking information and passwords) when accessing secure websites.

It is important to understand that Event Wizard is not at risk and never has been.

Event Wizard uses SSL/TLS issued by GeoTrust. We use Quick SSL, not OpenSSL. Quick SSL is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
