Update on Heartbleed Bug

Recently a flaw, called the Heartbleed bug, was discovered in OpenSSL, a security method used on the Internet. Fordham IT is aware of the issue and our team is following best practices to ensure the security of Fordham’s systems and mitigate risk. 

We have no reason to believe that Fordham’s secure systems have been compromised. However, this vulnerability is not an isolated issue affecting the Fordham community. It affects your online life outside of Fordham, as well. The website Mashable has a list of potentially affected sites and actions you should take to protect your sensitive data: .

Be on the lookout for criminals requesting your password via phishing emails or websites that claim your information has been compromised. Criminals will take advantage of this opportunity to prey on fears about the Heartbleed bug. 

If you have questions, contact IT Customer Care at 718-817-3999 or Follow us on Twitter for news and alerts: @FordhamIT.
