What You Should Know About The Heartbleed Security Bug

This past Monday, a new vulnerability in OpenSSL version 1.0.1 called “Heartbleed” was announced. This vulnerability is of particular concern as it could permit a remote attacker to extract up to 64 KB of information from any remote server running OpenSSL software. Unfortunately, this data leakage could include login credentials, private keys and other sensitive information.

Based on the software’s release history, this vulnerability has existed for approximately two years. Further, the attack leaves behind no tell tale log signatures to identify that an attack has taken place or what sensitive information may have been leaked. In many ways, this vulnerability represents the perfect storm in Internet security, as OpenSSL is considered the most popular way to secure web browser sessions.

Dyn Family

Treat & Run Your Business Like A Family

I recently had the honor of speaking at the Transitions East Conference in Tampa, FL, put on by Family Business Magazine and Stetson University. I didn’t know what to expect as it was my first time attending such a conference. Nearly 300 attendees were treated to an agenda that was informative, honest, and inspiring.

The show was littered with speakers and attendees from Bush Beans (Jay Bush of Jay & Duke fame), Brown-Forman (Jack Daniels, Finlandia), the CEO of Just Born and Candy Hall-of-Famer Ross Born (Mike & Ikes, Peeps), and Wendy Yuengling Baker (Yuengling, America’s oldest brewery). The list went on and on. Everywhere you turned, an iconic family enterprise like Publix, Meijer, Luck Companies, and the Harlem Globetrotters said hello.

It was awesome networking as these people were filled with pride and commitment to their work.

The Resilient Internet: Why You Can’t Shut It Down

In last week’s blog, my colleague Chris Brenton wrote a great piece on Why Turkey’s Twitter Ban May Be Futile. He concluded the piece with a critically important sentence: “From the beginning the Internet was designed to resiliently facilitate the free flow of information.”
