Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability

Belkin is aware of the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability.  However, after thorough testing of our product lines, we can confirm that our routers are NOT impacted.  In regards to our WeMo line of home automation solutions, our firmware does use OpenSSL but they use another version that is not impacted by this vulnerability.  Our WeMo products do work with other vendor software solutions, however, we have taken precautions by changing the credentials they use via our cloud to avoid any potential risk.
What is Heartbleed?
Heartbleed is an OpenSSL vulnerability that exposes security and privacy information over the Internet.  It targets applications that use OpenSSL such as email, instant messaging, web, and some Virtual Private Networks (VPN).
It allows anyone on the Internet to see the system memory of applications that use OpenSSL, exposing confidential information such as usernames and passwords, email and instant messages, and other important documents.
