IMPORTANT: Change your password on the Lions booking site

Postby Russ Phillips » Wed Apr 09, 2014 12:21 pm

You may have heard of the Heartbleed bug, which is a particularly nasty vulnerability in OpenSSL. The web server that the Lions booking system runs on was using a vulnerable version of OpenSSL. It has now been patched, but it is possible that your password has been compromised. One of the difficulties of this particular bug is that there is no way to know what has been compromised and what hasn't.

I therefore strongly recommend that you change your password on the Lions booking system. If you use that same password anywhere else, change the password on those systems as well. I would also suggest that you take this opportunity to set different passwords on each system. You can use a password database like Password Safe or Keepass to store your passwords securely.
