GPSTravelMaps Store Safe from Heartbleed SSL Bug

The internet has been busy this week with the discovery of a wide-ranging security bug called 'Heartbleed'.  First reported by Codenomicon and a Google Security analyst, the bug allows for sensitive information such as passwords, payment methods and other items to be exposed and retrieved from websites using OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f.  The Hearthbleed website contains detailed information on the problem and how to solve it.

GPSTravelMaps does not rely on OpenSSL for our security protocols with our customers.  We use industry standard, third party security systems and ecommerce systems provided by Volusion that have been safe from the Heartbleed bug because we and they have do not use OpenSSL.  This means that our customer information has been safe and continues to be safe in our store.

We thank you for trusting GPSTravelMaps.com over the years in both your map and ecommerce usage.
