Gigasoft Data Protection Ltd have been made aware of this serious flaw in the OpenSSL coding. We have spent the past few days checking and double checking our systems to make sure our customers were not affected by this issue.

We have been speaking to all of our developers and have been assured that we are not vulnerable to this threat.

The heartbleed vulnerability had the potential to expose session cookies, SSL certificate private keys, and potentially passwords during login requests. We have since rotated all session IDs and confirmed that no login attempts or passwords were exposed during the vulnerable interval.

Gigasoft's Data Backup servers use JSSE as the SSL backend instead of OpenSSL, and therefore was never vulnerable to this issue.
