Recently, I had the great pleasure of taking my young friend Adam Kaplan to dinner to celebrate his 18th birthday. Actually, it was a double celebration, because Adam has been admitted to Stanford University and
begins classes in the fall. He had been considering other colleges such as Brown and Boston University but Adam has his priorities established: “You know, Jim, there are a lot of great bridge players in California.”

As we began to munch on our Italian delicacies, Adam began telling “tales of the tour.” Adam is a fulltime player and has been partnered with some of the best players in the world.

Our tournament was a great success and I want to thank all of you for your great casseroles, desserts, etc.  Special thanks to my partner and friend Jean Matusko for her outstanding help with cleaning, shopping, cooking and always being there. Special thanks also to Sue Graham who cleaned and relieved so I could play, and Margaret Zielinski who just pitched in without being asked. Hats off to our Swiss Luncheon specialist JoAnne Waitkus for an outstanding spread. I heard nothing but compliments (even from the Director) in regard to our friendliness and our food. Thank you all for going above and beyond!!

Web Site News

Thursday, April 10, 2014

It was recently revealed that a serious bug (called HeartBleed in news reports) in website servers could have compromised usernames and passwords and the encrypted communications of such sites as banks.  This bug was present in several new and previous versions of the server software used by 2/3rds of all the websites in the world -- millions of sites -- and was permanently fixed on our server April 9, if it was present there. (Our web server company owns and runs many other servers as well -- some of their servers did not have the bug.) The bug was present in some versions for about 2 years, but it seems (to me) that it was only recently discovered by hackers. But do not shrug this off -- read on.

I'm confident that no further action is required on my part, and I'm not sure our attack was related to this.

But you might be affected anyway. If your password on any site is the same as the password on some other site(s), then if it was compromised by the server bug, then hackers would be able to access those sites if they can obtain your username.

If that's the case, change the passwords on all sites that use the potentially compromised shared password, and promise yourself you'll never do that again. This is possible on any website where you log in -- if you use the same password in more than one place, you should fix all of them.

Fixing usernames is more difficult -- you may need to contact the website operator to change it -- merely re-registering is not sufficient becuase the old account still would exist.  But with a new password, it should be OK to keep the username.

In the future, never use the same username on two sites, and never use the same password on two sites.
