The Heartbleed vulnerability in discovered in OpenSSL 1.0.1 - 1.0.1f is one of the most serious matters in encrypted data communication during the last years. First of all we can ensure you that the encrypted web services like the DD-WRT Online Shop and the Activation center never have been affected because the OpenSSL version we are using does not contain the vulnerability. Currently the main focus of the Heartbleed discussion lies on web servers using SSL/TLS but other services on Linux systems are also using OpenSSL.

Wireless Security - WiFi Wireless Home Network Security Tips Many folks setting up wireless home networks rush through the job to get their Internet connectivity working as quickly as possible. That's totally understandable. It's also quite risky as numerous security problems can result. wall m0n0wall is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded PC, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software). m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD, along with a web server, PHP and a few other utilities. The entire system configuration is stored in one single XML text file to keep things transparent. m0n0wall is probably the first UNIX system that has its boot-time configuration done with PHP, rather than the usual shell scripts, and that has the entire system configuration stored in XML format. In m0n0wall 1.8.1, the base system has been switched to FreeBSD 8.4 for better support of recent hardware, and there have been significant improvements, new features and bug fixes in many areas.

Here is the device: The Terms of Use (which I do not find on the public part of the Web site) forbid me to give public information about the SamKnows box (without a prior written authorization) but I decided I can at least publish the picture. Once connected to the local network, it starts active measurements to various points on the Internet and reports them to its controller.
