Over the past few months you may have heard about a couple of serious vulnerabilities to key online components.

First was the discovery of a serious flaw in OpenSSL encryption called Heartbleed. Websites with an SSL certificate (https) were at risk of being exploited and sensitive information spied upon.

Yambo acted swiftly to patch the vulnerability and to reassure our customers none of their personal information was ever compromised. We always work hard to ensure our customer's websites are protected. Unfortunately, just like how new viruses try to infect your home computers, online technologies are also prone to attack.

Shellshock is the latest vulnerability to be discovered, and affects Linux servers. Again, this has been successfully patched by Yambo within 24 hours.

Very few vulnerabilites attract media attention like Shellshock (and Heartbleed), but we treat all vulnerabilities with the same high-level priority. We work tirelessly to ensure your website is up-to-date and protected at all times.

A website is not just for Christmas...
(unless it's a 'letters to Santa' website)
