Statement regarding OpenSSL vulnerability

Dear Bitstamp Clients,

After vulnerabilities were reported in OpenSSL, we applied necessary patches to our system. Incapsula, our DDOS mitigation provider is still working patching their system.

In order to provide required security, both systems need to be patched. We are in constant contact with Incapsula and are working with them to complete necessary procedures. Until then Bitstamp has decided to temporally deactivate:

-account registration
-account login
-and all virtual currency withdrawal functions

We will keep you updated on the progress.

Thank you for understanding.

Best regards
Bitstamp team
