In the past days has been published information about the Heartbleed software Bug that could affect almost all the Linux based systems or other programs that use the OpenSSL library.

The University of Aveiro central servers have been already verified and aren’t affected or don't have the bug.

All the clients that run Windows and MAC OS X are not affected by the Heartbleed Bug.
