FrontStream Payments Nonprofit Division confirms our brands Artez Interactive, FirstGiving, GiftWorks and TRUiST were not vulnerable to the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug.

Recently, the development community was made aware of a vulnerability in theĀ OpenSSL software library that has the potential to put a significant number of the internet’s websites at risk.

Dubbed “Heartbleed”, this bug allows information to be accessed that would normally be protected by some versions of OpenSSL.

GiftWorks can confirm that our servers and products were not vulnerable to Heartbleed and your secure client data was not affected. If you have any further questions about this issue, please contact the Account Manager or support team in your location.

The Heartbleed bug is considered a significant security threat. For more information about how to protect yourself, seeĀ The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need To Change Right Now for a list of potentially affected websites and recommendations for further action.
