ABA Journal Law News Now online publication reported Monday (April 14) that a
number of websites popular with lawyers are vulnerable to the Heartbleed
security flaw. Quoting a post from Robert Ambrogi, attorney, writer and media
consultant, on his LawSites website, some of the
common sites are Dropbox, Google and Yahoo, as well as more specific
law-related sites such as Estate Map, MyCase and Clio.
to Ambrogi, most of the sites affected have now installed patches to fix the
problem. Clio, for example, posted a notice on its website saying that its
infrastructure team "worked tirelessly” to patch and secure all systems
affected by the Heartbleed bug. The work was completed on April 9.
we have no evidence that customer information was compromised as a result of
the Heartbleed vulnerability, as a precaution we strongly recommend that our
customers reset their passwords immediately,” the company wrote in its post.
Street, writing in the Lawyerist on April 11,
explains what Heartbleed is, how it happened and what to do about it. He, as
with Ambrogi and other technology experts, recommends changing your passwords
on the vulnerable sites as soon as possible.
