As you may or may not be aware, a recent security vulnerability was unveiled for servers using the OpenSSL cryptographic library that affects many different products and software worldwide. This vulnerability has been codenamed 'The Heartbleed Bug', and potentially allows attackers to read the memory of a protected server or client and retrieve encrypted personal information from that server/client.

As a result, Esri staff have been performing maintenance to validate, secure, and patch Esri servers and infrastructure to close this vulnerability and ensure Esri customers are protected.
