CKRSCCA & the Heartbleed Bug
Posted April 13, 2014, 2:33 pm in
The OpenSSL Heartbleed bug has been making significant news lately. It's a bug in certain OpenSSL implementations that can leak sensitive data from supposedly secure host systems, including passwords.
CKRSCCA, like many small sites and forums, does not utilize SSL (https sites in your browser) so we are not affected. However, on forums and sites such as CKR you should not used passwords that you use anywhere else, you should have a unique password in the case that if your password was compromised here the attacker could not use your sensitive information to gain access to other systems. You should never use the same password for your email account on any website, secure or not.
Our registration service Motorsportreg does use SSL however, and they have their own response at http://blog.motorsportreg.com/heartbleed-vulnerability-response
TL;DR is that they were not using an affected version of OpenSSL.
For a list of popular websites and their status, there is a great hit list here: http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/
We suggest everyone should review this list and change passwords as appropriate.

CKR Drivers Race in V8 Stock Car Series

Road Racing News
Three CKR member drivers competed in this past weekend's Buck Muse Memorial, the opening round of the Crane Cam V8 Stock Car Series, at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw SC. Greg Walker, Randy Walker and Win Smith all competed in the GTA class, featuring the high horsepower, tube frame, fiberglass bodied race cars. Saturday started with a rain soaked practice and qualifying session in which all three CKR members chose not to participate due to poor track conditions. Saturday afternoon found a drying track surface in time for racing. Unfortunately luck was not on the Kentucky trio's side as all three retired early with mechanical issues.
Sunday's event of the weekend doubleheader saw a sunny but windy day and much better track conditions for the high horsepower race cars. The minor issues with the cars were corrected and the finish in GTA saw Greg Walker take the comeback win in his Monte Carlo after taking a break from racing for the past few seasons. Randy Walker finished 3rd in his Camaro and Win Smith ended up in the 4th slot driving his Mustang. Overall a good showing for the three Kentucky GTA racers.
