16:22, Raptorjedi> So yeah. Here is a good question. Does ABB need to worry about this? http://heartbleed.com/
16:49, Speeder> Abb ever used SSH?
17:07, Raptorjedi> I don't know?
18:31, Gligar> We'd need Alex to check on the version of OpenSSL the server uses.
21:04, Cryoburner whispers: I somehow don't expect that it's super-important for a site like this.
21:06, Cryoburner whispers: Most communications with the server should be unencrypted anyway, aside from perhaps some server management software or something.
21:40, Gligar> It is still important that compromised builds be patched.
21:43, Cryoburner whispers: But then how is someone supposed to log into Alex's server dashboard and install spambots and such? >_>
21:43, Mary Lou> I don't really know my condition.
21:46, Cryoburner> I do suspect those might not be updated automatically by the hosting company though, since the site's on a virtual private server now.
21:47, Cryoburner whispers: And maybe it could provide an excuse to have Alex stop by in the near future. :P
21:51, Gligar> It's unmanaged. Alex will definitely need to stop by to check on this.
21:52, Gligar whispers: Also, there's the whole issue of free upgrades ;)
21:53, Cryoburner whispers: On the other hand, is the server even using a recent-enough version of openssl to be affected? :P
22:00, Cryoburner whispers: He apparently moved to the VPS in late 2010 though I seem to recall him updating some server software since then.
22:06, Gligar> We won't know until Alex checks. Though, perhaps it is time for an update anyway.
22:16, Raptorjedi> He should just update in general
22:29, Neuzd> Or just show up...
23:38, Albeyamakiir> The pressure to show up is probably why he doesn't. :P
23:51, Neuzd> What pressure? There's hardly a dozen stray cats over here.
