1 Heartbleed Bug

2

3 When all the net security people are freaking out, it’s probably an okay time to worry

4 A serious bug in OpenSSL — a library that is used to secure a very, very large percentage of the Internet’s traffic — was yesterday discovered and publicly disclosed

5 The apps you use, the sites you visit; if they encrypt the data they send back and forth, there’s a good chance they use OpenSSL

6 This means an attacker could get a server to spit out its secret keys, allowing them to read any communication that they intercept, like it wasn’t encrypted it all …

7 including the keys it uses to encrypt and decrypt communication (e.g. usernames, passwords, credit cards, etc.)

8 2+ years Affects 2/3 of web Millions of servers

9 Discovered and reported to the OpenSSL team by Neel Mehta of Google’s security team

10 Yahoo was affected Say they patched most of their sites yesterday

11 Apple, Google, Microsoft not affected Most e-banking sites OK

12 Flair for drama? Tor says “You might want to stay away from the Internet entirely for the next few days while things settle.”

13 Do you Yahoo? Use the same password on multiple sites? Might want to change it.

14 This is breaking news. We’ll await further advice which hopefully will be coming soon
