ePublishing Security Notice - DROWN Attack

March 4, 2016

DROWN AttackAs some of you may have heard, over 1/3 of the web servers on the Internet are susceptible to a particularly nasty attack called DROWN (Decrypting RSA with Obsolete and Weakened eNcryption).

You will be happy to know that our over-caffeinated and obsessive network engineering team ensured that ePublishing was never vulnerable to any attack vectors, and this was confirmed (twice) by aggressively testing our network long before it was public knowledge. There was no remediation necessary.

DROWN allows attackers to break https encryption and read or steal sensitive communications, including passwords, credit card numbers, trade secrets, or financial data.You may read more detail about this security threat by visiting the DROWN Attack web site.

Beating the bad guys before they beat us,

Your ePublishing Team
