Heartbleed

Heartbleed

News is breaking all over about Heartbleed, the dramatic name for a new bug that was putting internet security at risk. Bruce Schneier said of the Open SSL bug:

“Catastrophic” is the right word. On the scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11.

But don’t fear: Biblio.com is on top of the Heartbleed bug. Our site is secure and still safe for shopping, and no servers containing sensitive customer or bookseller information were at any point compromised. We have patched a couple noncritical servers holding no customer data that were affected and replaced the affected SSL certificates with completely new ones. You can shop securely on Biblio!
