Big news came out yesterday on the CyberSecurity front: The HeartBleed Bug in OpenSSL can be exploited to unencrypt secure traffic. LastPass, Yahoo Mail, and more are affected.(Information via ThreatPost)
“This vulnerability is very easy to exploit. It’s very easy to build from scratch…and there are also several tools that can be downloaded and used, in a matter of minutes.”
“The vulnerability in OpenSSL appears to have been introduced two years ago.”
“It’s a nightmare vulnerability, since it potentially leaks your long term secret key — the one that corresponds with your server certificate. Worse, there’s no way to tell if you’ve been exploited.
Here is a tool that you can use to check against domains/websites, in order to verify the SSL security.
