Fandor Not Affected by Heartbleed Bug

Heartbleed, a significant security flaw involving the implementation of encryption methods used by many websites, was announced this week by security researchers.  The problem, which could expose personal information like passwords and credit card numbers, involves certain versions of the OpenSSL software.
