Heartbleed Vulnerability Update

Anthony Eden's profile picture Anthony Eden

The internet is buzzing with the recently discovered SSL Heartbleed vulenerability. At DNSimple we are working hard to patch all our systems and help our customers protect theirs.

We are preparing updates to OpenSSL on all of our systems. This deployment will be completed before we begin reissuing certificates. In the meantime we recommend holding off purchasing new certificates.

In addition, we are developing a feature that will allow our customers to reissue their SSL Certificates. It will be released later today as well. An announcement will be made on this blog when it is available.

The reissued certificate will be a brand new certificate, created from a new certificate request. If we generate your CSR, then we will also generate a new private key.

Unfortunately, since the Certificate Authorities will likely be overwhelmed with reissue requests, reissuing certificates may take some time.

We will update regularly on the status of our systems regarding this issue. If there is anything in particular that you want to know that we haven't covered here don't heasitate to contact us.

I break things so Simone continues to have plenty to do. I occasionally have useful ideas, like building a domain and DNS provider that doesn't suck.
