Heartbleed Notification & Update


Recently the Heartbleed Bug, known more officially as CVE-2014-0160, was discovered and found to exploit vulnerabilities in 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 of OpenSSL. We wanted to update the community on the vulnerability (or, happily, mostly lack thereof) of various Sencha web services due to Heartbleed. After reviewing our web services and products, we’ve determined that they have not been vulnerable to Heartbleed, with one specific exception that only affects users of Sencha Space on a device running Android 4.1.1.
