We have received several queries by concerned customers regarding the Heartbleed vulnerability that has recently been announced in the press.

The vulnerability affects sites that are not patched, who make use of a piece of software called OpenSSL.

We can assure you we are not affected by this vulnerability because:

  • We do not use OpenSSL
  • We have already scanned ourselves for the vulnerability and we have been found not to have it.
  • We are regularly scanned for such vulnerabilities by Trustwave to ensure we conform to industry standards for handling credit cards on line.

We would also like to point out that some of the sites that try to detect these vulnerabilities have become overloaded because so many people are checking them. A few are giving time-out messages which people are mistaking for a vulnerability.

PC2Paper will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Any letters sent during these days will be queued in our system and posted on the next available working day. In addition to this we have an earlier than normal cut-off time of 12 noon for mail on Christmas Eve due to an earlier postal collection.

We will also be removing Special Delivery and Recorded Delivery temporarily over the Christmas period once the cut-off time for these services has passed.

A Royal Mail strike which was planned for next week has been called off after a new agreement has been reached. The agreement is though to include an improved pay offer and a separate pensions agreement. This new agreement should be finalised within the next two weeks.
