What is bleeding, are you bleeding, and how do we stop it?
The Heartbleed Bug is a coined term for a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness “bleeds” the information which under normal conditions would be protected by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet, i.e. applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs). Other compromised information could be the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This gives attackers the ability to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.
