    Website/Forum Heartbleed Bug

    I was curious if Weasyl and it's website were/are vulnerable to this particular threat. Please let us know.

    Currently there's no evidence that we found that we'd be affected by Heartbleed, but as a general rule of thumb, if your Weasyl password is the same that you've used for other sites that may have been compromised you should consider changing it.

    So does that mean you guy's aren't affected by this bug, or just that no one has exploited it yet?

    Cause changing ones password on a server that is affected is a little bit pointless to do until after the server has been patched to no longer have that exploit.

    It was patched on both the main site and the forums the morning the exploit was found.

    Just curious, what kind of evidence would there be apart from whether or not you used a vulnerable version of OpenSSL?
