Should I be worried about The Heartbleed Bug?

By now, you may have heard of the major security vulnerability dubbed The Heartbleed Bug, which was recently announced for certain versions of OpenSSL, a key encryption library used by a majority of Internet-connected systems.  

There are no indications of malicious actions as a result of this vulnerability. None of the data connections that power our ERP integrations, APIs and systems that access and process your data have been affected.  This vulnerability never allowed access to your encrypted data at rest or data stores we operate.

As a best practice, Taulia utilizes multiple layers of encryption to protect your data both in transit and at rest. Following the release of the vulnerability, we audited the systems providing our core services and determined that they were not susceptible to this issue.  The only systems as part of our service that was deemed vulnerable was a load-balancer setup operated by Amazon Web Services - these systems were patched promptly after the release and never loaded or processed your data directly and only supported a fraction of our infrastructure. Appropriate measures were taken to remediate possible security concerns.  

If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team by emailing

Thank you for using and trusting Taulia!
