What is HeartBleed? The biggest security threat the internet has ever seen
A new vulnerability at the heart of internet encryption could have far reaching implications.
On Monday April 7th an urgent warning was released by the OpenSSL project detailing an extremely dangerous bug called Heartbleed. News of the vulnerability spread like wildfire, as it potentially affected the encryption software used by up to two thirds of servers on the internet, with serious implications for user data security. Large sites such as Yahoo, Flickr, DuckDuckGo, Eventbrite, and imgur were revealed to be at risk, while countless smaller portals, alongside email and instant messaging services, had also been exposed by the problematic code.
