The ‘Heartbleed’ security flaw that affects most of the Internet.
Bruce Schneier “Catastrophic” is the right word. On the scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11.

“The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. These sites are typically indicated by a lock icon in the browser to let site visitors know the information they’re sending online is hidden from prying eyes. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).
The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises 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 allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.”
The heartbleed bug was introduced in OpenSSL 1.0.1 and is present in
The bug is not present in 1.0.1g, nor is it present in the 1.0.0 branch nor the 0.9.8

— | The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. It allows for stealing information intended to be protected by SSL/TLS encryption.
— | State: VULNERABLE
— | Risk factor: High
— | Description:
— | OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta releases (including 1.0.1f and 1.0.2-beta1) of OpenSSL are affected by the Heartbleed bug. The bug allows for reading memory of systems protected by the vulnerable OpenSSL versions and could allow for disclosure of otherwise encrypted confidential information as well as the encryption keys themselves.

How to Fix HeartBleed
1. Upgrade OpenSSL
2. Revoke ALL SSL certificates
3. Regen all SSL priv keys
4. Get new certs from SSL vendor
