Important information about the “Heartbleed” security vulnerability in SSL encryption software

A few days ago, a dangerous security vulnerability was discovered in the OpenSSL encryption software (https://www.openssl.org). OpenSSL versions 1.01 to 1.01f are affected. The vulnerability, which occurred in the “Heartbeat” extension of OpenSSL, can lead to information leaking from the affected systems. Thus, the programmers who discovered the leak dubbed it “Heartbleed.”

Since OpenSSL is used on millions of servers to encrypt Internet connections, such as the transmission of websites or for delivering emails, the effects are very serious. 1&1 promptly began countermeasures and secured all potentially affected systems as soon as the vulnerability was known.

As a customer, this means: All servers that are managed by 1&1 and use OpenSSL have been secure since a few hours after the announcement of the Heartbleed bug.

Important: If you operate a server with root access (Dedicated Servers, Virtual Servers, or Dynamic Cloud Servers), 1&1 cannot automatically complete an update for you because we have no access to these systems. If you run OpenSSL on a root server, it is important to update to a secure version of the software immediately. Additionally, we recommend that you generate a new private SSL key and then create a new SSL certificate. Our Customer Care Team will happily assist you with this last step. You can reach them on 1-877-206-4255 (international +1 610-560-1620) or email server247@1and1.com.

More information about the Heartbleed bug can be found at http://heartbleed.com/ and a simplified explanation at http://lifehacker.com/what-the-heartbleed-security-bug-means-for-you-1560801201.

Installing Plugins to Enhance Your WordPress Site

Providing visitors with everything they need from your online presence is an essential component of customer satisfaction. Things that are immediately visible (like a customized design or specific functionality) and those that are expected (like website security) all contribute to the overall value of your website. One of the best solutions for extending the functionality of a WordPress installation is to add 3rd party plugins. Although there are a few different ways to add a plugin to your site, the easiest and most common methods can be achieved through the WordPress dashboard.

The official WordPress Plugin Directory (https://wordpress.org/plugins/) contains thousands of free, general public license options to add to your site. Since these plugins are approved by WordPress and follow all official guidelines, they are the easiest to implement. Follow these instructions to install official plugins using the dashboard search option:
- First, go to Plugins and click Add New
- Type in the plugin name or functionality in the search bar
-  Found the right plugin? Click Install
-  WordPress will install your plugin
-  Click Activate Plugin to activate
 
The look and functionality of your website is not limited to the capabilities of plugins found in the official directory. Premium plugins are available for purchase from various resources across the Web and a Google search can often provide more than enough options to choose from. Since these are not included in the official directory, they require a slightly different installation method. After identifying the desired plugin:
-  Download the plugin to your computer (always a ZIP file)
-  Go to Plugins in your WordPress dashboard and click Add New
-  Click Upload
Browse the ZIP file from your hard drive
-  Click Install Now
-  Click Activate Plugin to activate
 
By enhancing your website with a variety of plugins, and customizing each one, you can ensure that you offer your visitors a unique experience that meets their expectations. For assistance in managing your plugins and keeping your WordPress installation secure and up-to-date, we recommend using the Site Manager Plugin. The plugin, developed by 1&1’s WordPress Specialist Marko Heijnen, can be downloaded for free from http://wordpress.org/plugins/site-manager/.

Important Note for WordPress Users: Security Vulnerability in Jetpack Plugin
 
A few days ago, a critical security vulnerability in the popular WordPress plugin “Jetpack” was discovered. This vulnerability enables attackers to bypass the WordPress access control and publish text on affected WordPress blogs without needing log-in credentials.  All Jetpack plugins since version 1.9 are affected.
 
We ask all customers that have installed Jetpack to immediately update the plugin. This applies also to Click&Build users that have installed WordPress in Free Mode. You can easily update to a secure version in the plugin settings of your WordPress dashboard.
 
If you have installed WordPress as a Click&Build app in safe mode, 1&1 can take care of the update for you.
 
Jetpack is one the most widely used plugins with more than 9.5 million downloads, and is part of a WordPress tool collection that enriches self-hosted blogs.
 
You can find further information about the security vulnerability on the Jetpack plugin homepage. http://jetpack.me/2014/04/10/jetpack-security-update/
