Posted by kwame on April 8, 2014 – 5:21 pm

Today we woke up with a very fun and interesting news made public here http://heartbleed.com/

heartbleed

In short what this means is that all internet, IM, email and vpn communications that you thought where encrypted and secured, they are not. This is related to a bug in the OpenSSL software used to encrypt such communications.
Even more interesting is that according to this report, if your server was compromised there is no log or any evidence that it ever happened.
The OpenSource community is actively releasing patched to address this bug.
So, if you where p3wn3d, don’t worry about it, nobody will ever know it, not even your self 🙂

Patch and keep safe!

Cheers!
