Gibout Toys — Gibout Toys secure against Heartbleed

Posted by Gibout Staff on April 11, 2014 0 Comments


We're happy to report that is secure against Heartbleed. All keys and certificates have been re-issued as of April 8.

During the middle of day on April 7th, the Heartbleed issue became widely disclosed. The Shopify network security and operations team immediately set to work to protect our hosting infrastructure. By 7:00 p.m. they had rolled out a fix across core infrastructure, and by midnight all secondary systems had been secured. The operations team continued to work into the night, and by the following day, all keys and certificates had been re-issued.

Because of the rapid response of our operations team (faster than Google and Yahoo, for example) we haven’t detected any sensitive data being compromised. As a general precaution, we advise that you regularly change passwords, and other sensitive credentials like payment gateway and API credentials.

This would be a good time to update all such passwords.

Gibout Toys supports The Toy Bank following Toy Fair

Posted by Gibout Staff on April 08, 2014 0 Comments

One could argue that the most important business happens after the close of Toy Fair each year. This is when toys are gathered by The Toy Bank, sorted and donated to thousands of children in need. Gibout Toys has been actively involved in children-related charities from the start, and takes great pride and honor in participating in such events. 

The Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) announced that more than 35,000 playthings, valued at $380,000, were donated to The Toy Bank at the close of the 111th American International Toy Fair. Toys, games and youth entertainment products gathered on the last day of the show are currently being sorted for delivery to charities serving children in need.

With the help of Toy Bank partner Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), playthings donated by nearly 300 Toy Fair exhibitors will be distributed in the coming weeks to children’s charities in New York City as well as to kids living on U.S. military bases served by TIF’s national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America Military Services.
