Response to Heartbleed Vulnerability

April 10, 2014

You may have heard news of the “Heartbleed Bug” (CVE-2014-0160), as recently reported by the OpenSSL project.

The Heartbleed Bug affects the security of internet data and is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library, which is used to protect up to an estimated 75 percent of the internet’s secure traffic. The bug may allow individuals to read small portions of memory on systems protected by vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software.

At TASC, we’re very serious about maintaining the security and privacy of customer data. To that aim, we have pretested the patch released by the OpenSSL project and promptly applied it to any vulnerable systems. Further, our technology partners confirm that their systems have been updated as well.

No action is required on your part. You can be confident that your personal data is secure, and should continue to access your MyTASC account as usual. For more information about the Heartbleed Bug, please visit www.heartbleed.com.
