Does the security issue with Open SSL mean your website is at risk, causing a problem or needing fixed?

If your site doesn’t use a secure socket layer then you don’t have to worry. Red E does not have any clients currently using a Secure Socket Layer Certificate.

1and1.co.uk:
Red E uses 1and1.co.uk hosting and their Managed Server or Webhosting package customers are not affected.

Other ISPs:
123-reg.co.uk has not been affected by this issue as their platform does not use the version of the technology that was affected.

GoDaddy patched all core services that were running the affected version of OpenSSL.

Mailchimp is not affected.

As a website user however you may wish to take the advice provided on the BBC website. And changing your important log-in passwords as a user and as a site editor would seem a quick and easy way to get peace of mind.
