Google recently posted an update about a security vulnerability with SSLv3, an old version of SSL connection technology used mainly with Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP or older. The new vulnerability enables attackers to decode encrypted connections.

* SiteBuilder Websites are NOT Affected by the Heartbleed Security Issues

Heartbleed is a flaw in OpenSSL, the open-source encryption standard used by the majority of websites that need to transmit the data that users want to keep secure. We checked with our web hosting system developers today, and SiteBuilder websites are not affected by this flaw. Here is what our system developers wrote on April 11, 2014:

"You may have heard about a new security flaw called Heartbleed which is being reported about this week. This flaw effects most websites that use SSL encryption and in particular SSL implementations that use OpenSSL. We do not use OpenSSL and our systems are not affected by this security flaw."

See these websites for more information and advice:

Fraudulent Digital Certificates - Visit Microsoft Website for DetailsMicrosoft is aware of active attacks using at least one fraudulent digital certificate issued by DigiNotar. A fraudulent certificate could be used to spoof content, perform phishing attacks, or perform man-in-the-middle attacks against all Web browser users including users of Internet Explorer. This issue affects all supported releases of Microsoft Windows.

Typically no action is required of customers to install this update for supported releases of Microsoft Windows, because most customers have automatic updating enabled and this update will be downloaded and installed automatically.

For more information, including how to manually install this update, see Microsoft Security Advisory (2607712) at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2607712.mspx.
