"Freak" Vulnerability: What You Should Know in Regard to Redtail

On Tuesday, March 3, 2015, researchers announced a new SSL/TLS vulnerability called the FREAK attack. It allows an attacker to intercept HTTPS connections between vulnerable clients and servers and force them to use weakened encryption, which the attacker can break to steal or manipulate sensitive data.

Upon learning of this new security vulnerability, we immediately began assessing the potential threat in regard to Redtail's infrastructure. We have verified that all components of our network that utilize OpenSSL do not utilize versions prior to 1.0.1k, which is where the bug exists.

Rest assured we take all threats of this nature seriously and we will continue to monitor ongoing updates concerning the Freak vulnerability and react accordingly should additional action be required on our end.
