From the City Developers re: Heartbleed Bug:

You may have heard reports this week about something known as the Heartbleed bug, or CVE-2014-0160. This vulnerability breaks the SSL encryption that is used to keep your data safe on a majority of sites across the Internet (roughly 2/3 of all websites, including sites like Google, Amazon, Yahoo, etc) and on The City, since we use Open SSL through our hosting providers (Heroku and Amazon Web Services).

There’s no evidence that this vulnerability was exploited to attack The City’s data, but we take security very seriously and are continuing to monitor our services and have taken recommended actions to protect The City.

  • AWS and Heroku patched their services immediately once the vulnerability was made known and continue to monitor security. Additional details can be found here  and here.
  • In addition to the patches made at the service provider level, we have taken the additional precaution of regenerating our SSL certificates since the patches have been applied.
  • It is also recommended that people take the additional precaution of changing their City passwords.

Hopefully this answers any of your questions about the potential impact of this vulnerability on your City data, but please let our Support team know if you have further questions.
