As you may have heard, a major vulnerability in internet encryption was discovered this week. Upon learning of the vulnerability the SquidTeam worked quickly to close the loophole, and our affected servers were upgraded Tuesday evening.
We have not detected any malicious behavior as a result of this potential vulerability. However, as an added precaution we encourage you to change your Squidoo password.

In general, it’s a really good idea to use a different password for every site you use online. If you use the same password, that means that if it’s been exposed in one place, you ought to change it everywhere.
If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out.
