The internet’s a great way to get news out fast, but we prefer when the stories going viral are on Miley Cyrus or the latest great Apple gadget. You’ve probably all heard about the security flaw ‘Heartbleed’ by now but if you haven’t here is more information: read the full article.
For Our Q4Launch Customers
We wanted to let our customers know that we have proactively responded to this threat and taken the necessary precautions and all our servers have been patched to solve any potential threats. All the websites that we host are continually updated for threats like Heartbleed and for good things like user experience on new devices. It’s one less thing you have to worry about when Q4Launch builds and manages your website.
Heartbleed Precautionary Measures
We have no evidence that user credentials were compromised, but recommend that our customers change their passwords as a precautionary measure. Additionally if you use any third party booking engines, OTAs, e-commerce software, etc… we highly recommend changing your passwords there as well. Please email the changed passwords to use for accounts we access on your behalf.
Our New Normal
Our lives intersect with technology and the cloud more and more every day. We often feel like a breach in security won’t happen to us, but that is a naive way of thinking. You are collecting personal information on your booking site, so it’s critical to take every precaution. Security is a critical component of the service we provide for you at Q4Launch. Our team will continue to monitor this issue and provide more information as necessary. For your own sake, continue to be diligent about updating passwords.
If this latest cyber bug has lead you to rethink your website and how it’s being protected, get in contact with us at Q4Launch and we’ll let you know what’s possible.
