Thought the Heartbleed bug was old news? Think again.
The world outside of IT was largely unaware of OpenSSL until the recent Heartbleed bug made headlines. Now a vulnerability in the service has been discovered that is so old it can get its drivers license.
Bad news for those who thought the worst of the Heartbleed bug was already behind us. Security researchers are warning this problem isn’t going away overnight. In fact, expect it to keep creeping up for several months.
The OpenSSL library, a cryptographic service for up to two-thirds of the web, has recently patched a serious and far reaching vulnerability that could allow a hacker to snoop on your files completely undetected.
