    Do They Use OpenSSL on This Site?

    'Heartbleed' has been around for over 3 years. This is old news whether they have just reported it or not!

    You can be signed in on the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One simultaneously, you just can't be signed into the same generation of console at the same time (an Xbox 360 with another Xbox 360 or an Xbox One with another Xbox One).

    Well we thought we were safe.

    Gearbox have confirmed that they believe their data may have been compromised by the "Heartbleed Exploit".

    They have updated their site and are encouraging users to change their passwords.

    Did you play "Borderlands 2"?

    If you did, that means you.

    Knew I saw it on one of the MS Blogs:

    SOURCE

    On April 8, 2014, security researchers announced a flaw in the OpenSSL encryption software library used by many websites to protect customers’ data. The vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” could potentially allow a cyberattacker to access a website’s customer
    data along with traffic encryption keys.

    After a thorough investigation, Microsoft determined that Microsoft Account, Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Yammer and
    Skype, along with most Microsoft Services, are not impacted by the OpenSSL “Heartbleed” vulnerability. Windows’ implementation of SSL/TLS is also not impacted. A few Services continue to be reviewed and updated with further protections.

    Microsoft always encourages its customers to be vigilant with the security of their online accounts, change their account passwords periodically and to use complex passwords. More information on how to create strong passwords is available here: Microsoft
    Security & Safety Center: Create strong passwords.

    Emphasis in bold is my own - your xbox live account is a Microsoft Account. At any rate, if you use the same password on here as you do in other sites which have been affected, then I'd strongly urge you to change it in the event the other site was compromised.
