Heartbleed - All users will need to login again

Post by stuartm » Wed Apr 09, 2014 8:34 pm

Due to the Heartbleed vunerability discovered in OpenSSL we've changed our SSL certificate as a precaution and all active user sessions in the forum have been cleared. This will mean you need to log in again, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience but know that we are doing this for the sake of your security. Our servers were updated hours after the news first broke and are no longer vulnerable - https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze ... mythtv.org

Although there's no evidence that the mythtv.org server was targeted at any time, we take your security seriously. Session credentials and passwords may in theory have been compromised. You may wish to change your passwords as well, especially if you use the same password on other sites. This advice applies to all other websites you use.
