Heartbleed OpenSSL (SSL/TLS) vulnerability - analysis of a mind-blowingly simple bug | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
The OpenSSL encryption flaw, known as the Heartbleed bug, is being called one of the biggest security flaws ever seen on the Internet. One security analyst called it “catastrophic” and said that on a scale of 1 to 10, the vulnerability was an 11. The newly discovered vulnerability isn’t “big news” because of its complexity, but for the fact that the amazingly simple bug existed for two years before anyone noticed allowing millions of servers to remain vulnerable and open to hacker attacks. http://geekslop.com/2014/heartbleed-openssl-ssl-tls-vulnerability-hacker-bug-analysis
