The Heartbleed Bug

Dear Colleagues,

The Heartbleed Bug is a vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing of the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet which can include the names, passwords, and actual content of secure information.

​As of April 10, 2014, all ITS managed services have been patched to mitigate this threat.  Additionally, our campus intrusion prevention and detection system has been updated to block external attempts from malicious actors.  After review, we do not believe there is any need to change your UofM campus UUID password at this time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Help Desk 24/7 at 678-8888.

Thank you,
