The Heartbleed Problem

heartbleed

 

Excuse us for disturbing you with this issue, but we need to do so, since our top priority is the safety of your data.

We were affected by the so called Heartbleed Problem (also known as CVE-2014-0160). We updated everything that was affected on April 7th, between 22:30 and 23:30 UTC (with the release of Debian security advisory 2896-1).

We do not store your passwords in clear text, but the vulnerability did allow for almost unlimited access to the memory of the server process, which means that if you had logged in before, especially between our update and the public disclosure of the vulnerability (which is a window of a few hours), the possibility exists that it might have become known to attackers.

We also have no information about the abuse of this vulnerability before the public disclosure, so we cannot guarantee that it wasn’t abused.

We would recommend for you to change your passwords in due time. Your files safety is our top priority!

Play FLAC files on every platform using pCloud

flac

For those who are not familiar with FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec), this is a codec for lossless compression of digital audio. Explained in simple terms – that’s a CD-quality music sounds.

The FLAC files come useful when you want to make a digital copy of your CD collection – you can make a digital copy of your CD for your car, for example, with exactly the same quality as the original one.

There are few disadvantages though – FLACs are bigger than the mp3s (typically a full album is around 300-500mb) and audio players that support FLAC are hard to find.

All in all pCloud solves these problems – you can simply play your music on our in-built Android and Web Audio players.

Keep your music safe with pCloud and play it wherever you like.
