As you may have seen in the news over the past few days, there is security vulnerability named the “Heartbleed Bug” that affected many of the sites on the web. The vulnerability is within the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. It is estimated that over 66% of websites were potentially vulnerable. Detailed Image uses OpenSSL, as does Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon, and many other popular websites.
We want to provide our customers with the details of how we’ve addressed this serious issue. Keeping our customers information safe is one of our highest priorities, as is being honest and transparent with you.
Action We Took
Most importantly, we have no reason to suspect that any of your personal information was compromised.
However, we still take potential threats like this very seriously. A patch was released to fix this vulnerability. Within hours of it becoming available to us, we applied the patch to our server. We also reissued our SSL certificate. These two actions are what effectively close the vulnerability.
As you can see from the Heartbleed Test site, Detailed Image is now listed as fixed. If you’re curious, you can see our SSL certificate information here or by clicking the “lock” icon next to our URL in most web browsers while visiting a secure page like our login page.
How We Keep You Safe
- All sensitive information that you enter is encrypted – we use high-grade secure socket layer technology (SSL) any time you enter personal information. This includes registrations, logins, contact forms, and of course throughout the entire checkout process.
- We do not store your credit card information – we do not, and never have, stored our customers credit card information. Nor does anyone on our team have access to your payment information. We use the very secure PayPal Payments Pro to process credit card orders. After entering your payment information they tell us whether your payment was successful or not, and that success/failure information is all that we store.
- We are fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) – meaning that we comply with a strict set of standards for our infrastructure and server setup outlined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, a council comprised of major payment vendors such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. This is verified regularly with a scan from an independent third party.
- We use strong encryption for your login credentials – the most sensitive bit of information that we do store is your password, and we take that very seriously. We use multiple forms of encryption, and again, for your security, no one on our team can ever access or view your password. As security experts recommend, we do highly advise that you use a unique password for every website that you use.
If you have any questions, feedback, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We will have a short period of downtime from approximately 9:00 AM ET to 11:00 AM ET on 1/11/2014 to perform scheduled maintenance to our site. During this time you can browse the site, but you will be unable to log in to your account or make a purchase. We will post a message on every page of the site as soon as we start, and we’ll remove the message as soon as our maintenance is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Update 8:50 PM ET 1/11/14 – unfortunately we ran into more issues than we anticipated when upgrading our database software. For a large part of the day customers were not able to make purchases. The updates are now completed and the site is fully up and running. If you encounter any problems please let us know. We’re sorry for making it so difficult to shop with us today. We’ll do our best to minimize this type of interruption in the future.
As many of you know, the Northeast is being hit hard by Winter Storm Hercules. In addition to over a foot of snow here in Albany, NY, we’re also faced with extreme cold and wind. Wind chills up to -25 degrees Fahrenheit combined with the snow and ice have made travel potentially dangerous. For the safety of our employees, we have decided to close our warehouse operations on Thursday, January 2nd and Friday, January 3rd.
With the New Year’s Holiday on Wednesday and the weekend beginning tomorrow, this means that orders placed as far back as Tuesday, December 31st will not ship until Monday, January 6th. We sincerely apologize for the delays. We will be in bright and early Monday morning working hard to get every single package out. If you’ve placed an order that has yet to ship, you can expect it to ship Monday. We’ll send you a tracking email as soon as it leaves our warehouse.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Thank you to all of our customers who purchased a pink product during the month of October. The funds raised will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society to help aid in the fight against breast cancer!
