Configura not affected by the Heartbleed bug

LINKOPING, SWEDEN – April 14, 2014 - There has recently been a widely publicized bug regarding OpenSSL known as "Heartbleed". Since we have gotten some questions regarding this, we at Configura wanted to inform you that we have not been affected, since we are not using any of the vulnerable versions of OpenSSL.

"We’re happy that we never were affected by this bug. We’re always working to ensure security, and the integrity of our users is most important to us,” Chief Information Officer Tobias Wester said.

What is Heartbleed?

In short, Heartbleed is a bug that enables anyone on the internet to extract a random chunk of memory - up to 64k - from a server, and without the server operator being able to detect it. This means that with enough time and effort, a hacker might extract passwords, private keys and pretty much anything else located in the memory of a server.

Configura’s trek to NeoCon ’12 started with a Crown Vic – a big boat of a car that’s anything but “cool” compared to the cute izzy+ Mini-Cooper that wedges between the semi-trucks lining “Merchandise Mart row” during NeoCon Week.

A funny thing happened over the course of the last four years that Configura has held its CET Designer User Conference. The user conference was designed as a way for Configura to get feedback on its space planning software from users. Yet the conference has turned much more collaborative. Users are teaching each other best practices at the conference held annually in Las Vegas. And Configura executives couldn’t be happier.

Photo Realistic

Photo loab
Photo Lab produces renderings so realistic that the software eliminates the need for any other add-on-tool or outsourcing of the rendering function, according to the company.

Configura's Roundtable

The folks at Configura, the Swedish space planning software company, feel the office furniture industry (and many other industries, for that matter) is too complicated. Office furniture has almost endless combinations and parts and its easy for even the most experienced industry veteran to mess up the plans or forget parts for an order.

Configura Turns 20
