What is the Heartbleed vulnerability?
On April 7th, a significant vulnerability was found in OpenSSL which is a library used to encrypt connections for the majority of websites on the internet. The Heartbleed bug as it's been coined would allow an attacker to read the keys that protect communication of a vulnerable server. This is a significant bug which has had website companies all over globe racing to update their systems.
