Until 2014-04-08 linux-mips.org was running an OpenSSL configuration vulnerable to the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heartbleed Heartbleed] [https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0160 CVE-2014-0160] bug.  The issue has been fixed and all affected SSL keys and certificates have been revoked and replaced.
 +
The use of SSL encrypted services on linux-mips.org is optional; all services are also available via the traditional unencrypted HTTP protocolAs such only paranoid users, users of linux-mips.org's HTTP services and users that are using the same password on other sites are recommended to change their passwords.
 +
Access to linux-mips.org's crown jewels such as the git source archives was not affected by the Heartbleed issue.
