Do you own a sound effects Web shop? A brief PSA: your checkout may be outdated, and your customers’s information may be at risk. I recently learned about this flaw which affects supposedly secure websites, Internet-wide.
Now, I know that sounds alarming. But before you call your Web developer in a cold sweat, please note that it affects only a subset of Web visitors. In fact, your shop may not be affected at all.
However, we do talk about sharing sound on the Web on this blog from time to time. I know many field recording pros share their sound libraries on their own Web shops. So, I felt it was important to share the info so you update your own site if you are indeed affected.
This post will briefly describe the problem, explain how to check if you’re affected, and help you fix it yourself.
