A very serious security vulnerability referred to as the “Heartbleed” virus is being covered widely in the press. “Heartbleed” allows an unauthorized user to potentially extract passwords, encryption keys, and other security data such as session tokens from vulnerable systems. The vulnerability is in the open source package OpenSSL, which is used in a wide range of products from many vendors, including Polycom.


Polycom believes that security is of the utmost importance. Our Product Security team is closely monitoring “Heartbleed” and has developed and posted a security advisory that lists Polycom products and versions that are vulnerable. The security advisory document provides information on when patches will be available for vulnerable products and the process to obtain these patches.  Please note that these security patches are available at no charge to customers.


This information is also available on Polycom’s public security page http://www.polycom.com/security.


The security advisory is being updated as more information becomes available.


Please review this information and share it with your teams and customers.

Thank you for the article!

I heard something about cloud services vulnerability but never paid enough attention to this problem. Now I know that I'd better had done this. The main problem of today's cloud services is that none of them can guarantee 100% securitty and this can be a key factor for a customer. In my experience, I know that Ideals virtual data rooms must be the most reliable and I personally have been using their services so far.

cloud services cover a wide scope of assets that a specialist co-op conveys to clients through the web, which, in this unique situation, has comprehensively gotten known as the cloud. Attributes of cloud administrations incorporate self-provisioning and flexibility; that is, clients can arrangement benefits on an on-request premise and close them down when no longer vital. I use the M&A data room, specially designed for business and m&a transactions to encourage the broad due persistence process commonly embraced by purchasers.
