Like many parents with school-age kids, you’ll find me most weekends at a neighborhood park or in the bleachers rooting for my son’s teams. Last week I was at my older son’s lacrosse game (go Seahawks!) with my younger son in tow. The little guy isn’t exactly the biggest lacrosse fan, but as luck would have it, there was a Time Warner Cable Passpoint Wi-Fi signal at the park, so he was able to get online with his tablet to pass the time. Thanks to a roaming agreement with Time Warner Cable, Boingo subscribers can now access more than 50,000 Wi-Fi hotspots just like the one at the park – absolutely free. And because it was Passpoint-enabled, my son got connected automatically, without the need for a login password or special software. Passpoint is to Wi-Fi what peanut butter is to jelly. Quite simply, Passpoint is new technology that streamlines the process of getting online. No more searching for a signal or fumbling with login screens. Passpoint does all that work for you. It finds and connects to Passpoint-enabled Wi-Fi signals automatically. What’s more, Passpoint offers built-in security, which protects you on open Wi-Fi signals. And it delivers speeds that

Heartbleed Bug Impact @ Boingo


We are still reviewing all of our systems to determine potential impact from the Heartbleed bug discovered earlier this week. The good news is that our preliminary reviews show that most Boingo customers should be unaffected. This means that usernames, passwords and credit card information provided during signup and login should not have been exposed by Heartbleed. The one group of customers who have been at risk include ones who have used the Boingo VPN service. As a precaution, we have taken this service offline and will bring it back up once we have updated the necessary components to eliminate the bug. For now, customers will be unable to use the Boingo VPN service. Once the patches are complete, we will send an update to all customers who have used the VPN service in the past, advising them to update their passwords. Just for clarification, the Heartbleed bug means that the exploit existed in the server, but it does not mean that a hacker actually used the exploit to gain information. So even for services that were exposed, the likelihood that information was taken is relatively low. But since there is no way to know whether or not it has
