OpenSSL developers have announced an incoming critical issue, with further information due to be released after 13:00 UTC on Tuesday 1st November 2022.

OpenSSL is used in various places across our infrastructure. We have prepared our remediation plan to mitigate any potential exploitation, but this may cause temporary interruptions to some of our services.

If you notice any downtime on our service please be aware that it will likely be related to the patching of this OpenSSL issue.

Our service will be restored to normal after our infrastructure has been patched.

This does not impact our app in any way.
