Heartbleed Bug

The OpenSSL Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL’s encryption software library. The flaw exposes an opportunity to steal protected information through SSL/TLS encryption. Normally, encryption used to secure Internet traffic, SSL/TLS provides secure communications for email, instant messaging, Web and virtual private networks.

Vulnerable versions of OpenSSL allow hackers to read protected memory of systems that are supposed to be protected by the software giving access to user names, passwords and content.
