The Heartbleed Bug (CVE-2014-0160) is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. It is being called the “Heartbleed” exploit and has already started to garner national press attention. Skyward has completed a thorough review of our applications, and we do not use a vulnerable version of OpenSSL.
This means that there are no OpenSSL security concerns for your Skyward product suites.
Note: The Skyward application uses curl for ecommerce and file transfers. We have confirmed that the version of OpenSSL embedded in the version of curl Skyward provides is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed security issue.
