Notice: "Heartbleed" Bug
April 15, 2014
The “Heartbleed” bug was recently discovered in the data encryption software that is used by websites around the world. We have thoroughly reviewed our systems, and William Blair’s DAS website was not affected and is not vulnerable to this bug.
Password Best Practices
There are several best practices to help keep your personal information safe:
- Don’t use the same password for multiple websites – create unique usernames and passwords for each website you use
- If you use the same passwords across several sites, it’s a good idea to change them, especially since some sites may be vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug
- Change your passwords periodically
The security of our clients' information is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely.
