Our more tech-savvy users may have heard of the new 'Heartbleed' bug sweeping the interwebs. The bug exists in the piece of software that sits on a server and enables the 's' in 'https' to keep your browsing secure.
The bug compromises data on the server, which could include your data.
However this news update is to let you know that since we use CloudFlare to provide our 's' (SSL) in 'https', and since CloudFlare was warned about this bug over one week ago (before the public who just found out in recent hours) the issue has been completely patched for us.
Further, it is worth noting that any exploitation of the bug would only have revealed data on CloudFlare servers, not ours, meaning there is no way this bug could have leaked your user data on this site.
