In the wake of the Heart bleed Bug, some inexperienced vendors are suggesting users change their passwords, but this won’t protect them from further attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C., april 15, 2014 - Vorige week, the Heart bleed bug was discovered. Sindsdien, veel bedrijven en een paar onervaren beveiligingsbedrijven hebben met spoed onverstandige uitspraken te blussen. Een van die theorieën is dat gebruikers nodig hebben om hun wachtwoorden direct te wijzigen, zodat ze hun online veiligheid kan handhaven. Volgens LogmeOnce CEO en beveiligingsexpert Kevin Shahbazi, Dit zal je niet alleen niet beschermen, het kan uw risico op een cyberaanval te verhogen.

“Users should not change their passwords right now, it will not help the situation,”Zegt Shahbazi. “The problem with sites affected by the Heart bleed Bug is that hackers can visibly see your passwords. And until the infected sites clear up the problem themselves, it is advisable not to change your password. And be careful because the Heart bleed Bug affects more than just websites, it can also get into smart phones, security cameras, switches, virtual private networks, company video conferences, enz. It’s a very serious security issue and that can’t be overstated.”

This problem stems from the fact that the majority of people rely on one layer of protection (ex. SSL). LogmeOnce believes security is a multi-layered approach to build your defenses. Because LogmeOnce doesn’t use a third-party USB sticks, their military-grade, 26-layer encryption method operates entirely within the LogmeOnce system, providing even better protection.
This is the only company in the market that offers one unified solution a software key and a hardware key without the need for third party integration, welke middelen een nog betere beveiliging voor eindgebruikers.

The LogmeOnce password manager lets users securely log in from any device with a master password.
