Clio the law firm practice management software that I recommend recently released a Google Chrome Extension. This addition to the Google Chrome browser allows you to stay in your Google Email window while creating a timed session or task in Clio without having to leave the email! This is a very cool enhancement to your productivity and I recommend installing it right away.
Last week there was a significant announcement that a core feature of Internet security was vulnerable to being compromised. The feature is known as OpenSSL and the name of the vulnerability is known as Heartbleed. You can read more about it here.
Unfortnately this affected Clio a Law Firm Practice Management service that I have talked about many times. The good news is that they have fixed the vulnerability and the even better news is that they announced it to everyone on the Clio blog.
I made a quick video explaining the vulnerability and how Clio fixed it and their recommendation that you update your Clio Password just to be on the safe side of things.
In a perfect world there would never be situations like this but in the real world things happen. The most reassuring thing for me as a Clio Consultant and for my clients is that Clio resolved the issue quickly and made a public announcement about it.
