heartbleedThe Heartbleed bug is a big deal. This flaw affected TOR and about two-thirds of internet websites. The flaw was uncovered by researchers from Google and Codenomicon. It is expected that the big sites will be fixed quickly but that all the different devices and sites effected will not all be updated for months. The open source programmer, based in Germany, who inadvertently introduced this bug has come forward and admitted his mistake. PcMag.com has this info here:
