"Poodle" vulnerability fixed

When Google researchers published their "Poodle" vulnerability report on October 14th, took immediate action by fixing this security issue on OTM servers. OpenSSL has been upgraded to version 1.0.1j and the OTM webservers now deny connections via the deprecated SSLv3 protocol. As a consequence, Windows XP users surfing with the ancient Internet Explorer 6 are no longer able to connect to OTM resource and client interfaces.

Heartbleed Bug

Half a day after the SSL Heartbleed Bug became breaking IT news on April 8, had fixed this bug on the OTM servers.

Due to the fact that our servers have been using Forward Secrecy in the past, we are sure about OTM servers haven't been affected by the Heartbleed Bug. Nonetheless we decided to initiate a re-issue of the SSL certificate which has been implemented on earlier today.
