A few days ago a severe vulnerability in the newer versions of the widely used encryption software OpenSSL was discovered, which is also referred to as Heartbleed Bug
. Through this vulnerability user data and passwords could have therefore fall into the wrong hands. Also the server for Electronic Dissertations was affected by this bug. We therefore strongly recommend you to change your password here: https://edoc.ub.uni-muenchen.de/secure/cgi/reset_password
In order to keep the damage as low as possible, we have installed immediately after the announcement of the bug an updated version of OpenSSL on the server as well as a new SSL certificate, so the platform for Electronic Dissertations of the University of Munich with respect to the Heartbleed bug can be considered safe again.
