Heartbleed is an encryption flaw that affected about half of all SSL certificates on the internet. While we don’t have any indication that our site data was in any way affected by the latest security scare, I wanted to take a moment to reassure you that we have already updated a patch to our servers and re-issued all SSL certificates anyway, as an additional precaution, to make sure that our customers can visit our web site with the highest level of confidence.
It is generally recommended that all internet users change their passwords for all web sites a few times a year as a standard security practice. In response to Heartbleed, security experts recommended that you reset your passwords for all web sites you visit, after those web sites' administrators have informed you that they’ve updated their security patches. The Honest Kitchen has already updated its security patch, and therefore it is now safe to reset your password on our web site, if you wish to do so.
We’re continuing to monitor the situation and will keep you updated if there are any additional developments. In the meantime, you can find out more about the Heartbleed security flaw here.
