Recently, a vulnerability called “Heartbleed” that affects the common OpenSSL software was discovered. After review, LionLock has determined that none of its products or services offered to customers are affected.
Our software is built on top of Microsoft operating systems, which uses different SSL software than OpenSSL.
While our product is not affected, it is estimated that over 60% of the web uses OpenSSL, so a good portion of the web may be vulnerable. We strongly encourage customers to try and avoid connecting to vulnerable sites until the service notifies you of a fix to the problem.
For more information on the Heartbleed Security bug means for you and what you can do about it, check out this article on Lifehacker.com.

Customers. Security experts. Security beginners. And YOU.
As we further settle into the realm of digital-everything, online security is becoming more important than ever. From e-mail, to filing taxes online, Facebook, online banking, and so on, we all have usernames and passwords we need to memorize. But did you know:
- that 73% of people use the same password for multiple sites?
- 33% of people use the same password for every site?
- 60% of small businesses will close within six months of a successful cyber attack?
So if you have been hacked, lost access to your own account, or have experienced problems with sharing passwords, we can share a thing or two about staying secure in collaborative environments.
As a small business ourselves, and makers of security software, our goal is simple: To provide small businesses with a quick and convenient way of protecting their company passwords. More importantly, as people (that also have tons of passwords), we are here to provide you with the knowledge and tools to practice better online safety and productivity.
