Pleasant Password Server Products NOT Affected by OpenSSL 3.x Vulnerability

Regarding: OpenSSL 3.x Vulnerability

Password Server does NOT use OpenSSL and is NOT vulnerable to these attacks:

  • OpenSSL is an open source software toolkit, and as such, OpenSSL releases are basically source code releases.

Password Server products do NOT use this component and we have checked thoroughly that they are unaffected by this vulnerability:

  • Password Server
  • KeePass for Pleasant
  • Mac Client
  • Mobile Clients (android/iOS)
  • Password Safe Client
  • Self-Serve Reset
  • Auto-Fill (browser extension)

Pleasant Password Server components:

  • Server Side:
