Scott P. Havens was wrong

Like any vain person I google myself. I am pretty boring and I am fine with that.

But one thing that shows up is this link How Not To Handle Security Problems.

This was from when I worked at Arvixe in support. There was a scanner that created false positives for the heartbleed vulnerability when our servers used a non vulnerable OpenSSL and were not susceptible to Heartbleed but Scott Havens, did not seem to get this so he wrote a post exposing our great technical support staff by name on his blog back in 2014.

Most of us left Arvixe when it was transferred over to EIG via A Small Orange Webhosting. From the time Scott Haven’s wrote about us we never once had our OpenSSl on any server cracked or hacked or any information stolen via the Heartbleed bug because we were never vulnerable. Anything that happened after October 1st 2015 I cannot comment on since I was not working there after that date but in case people google names and say to themselves “Wow, they did not patch for Heartbleed! I am not going to hire them!” I just want to say that Hrishakesh W. James G., Michael Carr, Ryan C., and Patrick Stein + all the other folks I worked with at Arvixe were great and we handled this request the best we could because Scott Havens did not understand that Heartbleed scanners did not work on our OpenSSL version. We were never vulnerable, so therefore there was nothing to handle so we handled the non-security issue perfectly.
