Heartbleed Test and Solutions for Businesses

So a big on ‘Heartbleed‘, a lot of clients have been reading this one thrown around in the media, unlike a ton of other times ‘serious’ platform threatening announcements, this one is important. It is an old security flaw in the transport layer of the Internet that has been around for years. And yes I said the entire Internet. Specifically for the geeks out the SSL and TLS security protocols have, since 2011, been exposed to the flaw. To give you an idea of how bad this is 66% of the internet uses OpenSSL to secure things like you access passwords. So while you may not know what it is, chances are you are using everyday. For example, hackers can exploit a flaw in the security software used by major websites, such as wordpress.com, facebook.com and ebay.com to steal data like credit card numbers, passwords, and other personal information.

Here’s an interesting side note; a recent comment by the Obama Government was along the lines that it is in the interest of the NSA not to disclose bugs like this, suggesting that the NSA knew about this and was actively exploiting Heartbleed! I guess as our friends Facebook accounts got hacked we got a ton of spam from them about new sneakers or to start trading Forex, but we didn’t realise how a lot more sensitive data would have also been compromised.
