Last week, researchers uncovered a vulnerability in OpenSSL, a technology that enables encryption on many websites and applications across the Web. This vulnerability, commonly known as "Heartbleed", poses a risk to any product that relies on OpenSSL for encryption.
The ePubDirect engineering team immediately investigated the impact of this vulnerability on our platform, and found that we are not at risk. We do not use OpenSSL in our platform, and the technology that powers our infrastructure also does not use OpenSSL. As a result, our platform is not affected by this issue.
