I'm checking to see if Emma is on top of this "Heartbleed" OpenSSL security flaw that's in the news today. Is our data secure?

I heard the story reported on Nashville Public Radio as I was driving in to work this morning. Thank you for alerting us to the problem.

Yep, your data is secure! We aren’t vulnerable to it, and no action is necessary on your end.

I want to follow up here with a bit more detail. The servers where Emma users log in were not susceptible to the OpenSSL bug. Some more internal aspects of our system hosted with Amazon were affected, but no user data is exposed by those systems, and they were all patched by Amazon as soon as they became aware of the issue.

If you're one of the handful beta-testing the Emma Social feature (this is different from the feature you use to post your mailing on your social pages), we recommend disconnecting and reconnecting your Twitter/Facebook accounts, out of an abundance of caution. We have no evidence that any of this information was accessed.
