Hi

I suppose you would like to know if your website is vulnerable to the heartbleed bug right?
If yes check on the link http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

If not, you need to logon to the Linux server hosting the website and run
OPENSSL  
version

@SrikantRajeev: testing is a good idea - here is a handy testing tool:

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/

And you might want to consider installing one of the firefox or chrome plugins that give realtime display of the "heartbleed" bug whenever you visit a secure server.

note also - if your website is http and not https, it isn't running ANY sort of SSL, so is safe.

url for firefox link is also wrong, sorry - cut and paste fail there.

correct url is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/heartbleed-checker/

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

By the way, if you are not using ssl for your website, then no need to worry.
