Bleeding

 

We are happy, your information is safe. We at Loginradius are not using OpenSSL for security and encryption and we are not compromised or affected.

Bleeding

Heart bleed and you

The security bug which was under the carpet identified by Neel Mehta of Google Security, left millions of web companies including Yahoo, Pinterest ,Nasa, Google and billions of users connected to internet under the biggest security threats the Internet has ever seen . For the last 2 years we were using all these services with out noticing the bug and its impact.

If you have logged on to the effected site in the last two years, your account information, cyber criminal can break into your personal information including your password and credit card information etc.

What is heartbleed bug?

“The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.”

How I am affected?

Think that you lost your key set containing your home, office, car and all your secret lockers and bunch of hackers know where is it when you are not home.

Whether you are service provider or web user both the parties are affected and need to make sure safety for next couple of days.

What security measure should I take?

For web providers
- Check whether your site is affected here

- If you are affected inform the users and stop user access, it is not negative big companies are affected and doing the same
- Revoke all your SSL Certificates

Or take a good vacation from the Internet for this week and have more offline networking with people you haven’t met due to social networking.

LoginRadius office

WE FINALLY MOVED!! Okay, we didn’t go too far – just down the hall actually, but as we grow we are needing newer and better spaces! We now have 8 employees working out of the Edmonton office and many more around the world! Today marks our first day working in our new office in Enterprise Square and so far we love it! We thought we should share some pictures!

LoginRadius team moving desk

It took awhile for us to decide on the right design, but it looks great for now! This is just our temporary set up while we wait for Staples to finally decide to finish setting up for us. They probably just got stuck in a snow bank while on their way to their coffee break at Tim Hortons! Typical Canadian problems…

Desk arrangement

We then of course had to spend some time deciding what was necessary to make it the best office ever! Here you can see Soni, Chris, Brittany, and Karl working hard!

 LoginRadius strategizing

A lot of brainstorming lead to the list below. If you think of anything we are missing please tweet @loginradius using #startupessentials and help us out!

LoginRadius Essentials

Now everyone has went back to work and all that is left is for us to do is decorate!

Social login and social sharing strategizing

It only took us a long two months to get here (Thanks Staples…..), but we are here now! Stay tuned for some more pictures once we get all organized and get everything on our LoginRadius Essentials list!

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of a new week and aren’t too jealous of our new space!
