  • Most Puget Sound Systems Not Impacted by ‘Heartbleed’
    April 13, 2014 5:24 PM

    Most Puget Sound technology systems including, but not limited to, Cascade, PeopleSoft, Moodle, Mahara, Webmail, and the university’s blog server were not affected by Heartbleed, the serious vulnerability in OpenSSL that has been in the news over recent days.

    Technology Services has applied updates to wireless controllers and the university’s web server to address the few areas possibly affected by Heartbleed. We are only recommending a change of Puget Sound password for those users of the university’s content management system (CMS) who have logged into the web server from an Internet connection outside the university’s network. All other users do not need to change their passwords unless they feel inclined to do so as an added precaution.

    For questions or assistance, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 253.879.8585 or
