Heartbleed Update

Important Security Update

As you may have already heard, a major security vulnerability, called “Heartbleed,” has been identified that potentially allows unauthorized users to penetrate certain types of websites that encrypt, or scramble, passwords and user information across the Internet. Our website uses the affected “HTTPS” (Open SSL) protocol, indicated by a little lock icon on your address window.
Upon notification of this vulnerability, SSP applied security patches to eliminate this vulnerability on our site. We have completed this task and updated our security certificates.
Like most websites are doing, and out of an abundance of caution, we encourage you to change your password on our site.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact us at ssp@societyforscience.org.
