On April 7th 2014, a new security vulnerability was announced in OpenSSL, a cryptography library used to secure most of the traffic on the internet. This vulnerability is commonly known as “Heartbleed”, and this xkcd comic also explains the core idea very well and extremely concisely.
Fontdeck’s account management system uses OpenSSL to maintain the privacy of data sent between your computer and our servers. All our servers were updated quickly (last week) after the vulnerability’s announcement and we are currently replacing all SSL certificates.
We have no reason to believe that any data was actually compromised. However we recommend that you change your Fontdeck password.
To change your password, log in and go to your Account details page.
The Heartbleed vulnerability was a near-unprecedented security event and was not unique to Fontdeck. We recommend you check whether other sites and services you use were vulnerable, and consider resetting your password on all of them.
