We also want to provide you with best practices for your other online activity that may help in limiting your personal vulnerability to the Heartbleed Bug:
Q: Is my data stored on Cloud9 servers vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug?
A: No it is NOT! We have confirmed with our SSL issuer that our SSL certification and servers are not at risk.

Additionally, the use of an automated time-out policy when users become idle in the Cloud as well as requiring multiple logins and encrypted passwords before being able to access data also serve as productive security measures.
