On the afternoon of Monday, April 7 2014, the Heartbleed bug was made public and demonstrated that the majority of encrypted traffic on the Internet was vulnerable to eavesdropping.
In this post we wanted to provide insight into the steps Acquia took to handle this event. First, though, we want to state:
- Acquia’s infrastructure is now safe and hardened
- Acquia has been working to ensure our customers’ Drupal sites are secure no matter how or where they use Drupal
- Mitigating Heartbleed involves more than just software updates or server patching
- We are working with our customers to ensure that their sites are as secure as possible
