Heartbleed Bug

The Heartbleed bug is a vulnerability within certain versions of OpenSSL an open source implementation of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

While it has been said to have only affected a small portion of the Internet, the potential for another, similar bug to appear in the future exists, as hackers are only going to look for new, more complex ways to get around the system.
