On Monday April 7th, a major vulnerability called “Heartbleed” had been discovered in the technology behind Internet encryption i.e. OpenSSL.
This was immediately addressed by the OpenSSL group and the main concerned parties have already updated their infrastructure. Even though musiXmatch does not handle nor store any sensitive data, all our peers do, thus we and one of our service providers (Amazon Web Service) have upgraded and patched our infrastructure.
Our updated infrastructure can now interact safely with all the counterparts used by our applications (Twitter, Facebook and Google+). We have not yet encountered any issue related to this vulnerability in the musiXmatch apps. However as a precautionary measure, we strongly advise you to logout of Facebook or Google+ from the musiXmatch app, restart the application and then login again using your favourite social network.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
