Heartbleed and TSR


The internet was recently rocked by the announcement of a critical vulnerability in OpenSSL dubbed Heartbleed. Libraries provided by OpenSSL are used by approximately two thirds of companies on the internet to secure their communication. Companies across the internet are now working to both patch the vulnerability as well as take appropriate precautions against any potential exploits of the vulnerability. This vulnerability has been given the CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) identifier of CVE–2014–0160.

Because the vulnerability may have exposed private keys used for encrypting traffic between TSR, you and third parties we have issued a new certificate and made sure that our encryption software is patched. We have also made sure that third parties have patched and mitigated the problem on their end.

There is no indication of data being leaked because of this vulnerability but as a precaution we recommend that you change your account password. If you have any questions or concerns about this please email support@thesimsreource.com.

We are monitoring things closely and are working on ways to further improve security on TSR.
