Heartbleed

WHAT IS HEARTBLEED?

I use Norton Internet Security and have for many years. Today, I received this information I’d like to share with  you in case you haven’t heard about this.

HEARTBLEED is a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source implementation of the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. This vulnerability allows hackers to access sensitive data, eavesdrop on communications, and possibly impersonate services and users on web servers that use OpenSSL.

If you visited a website that uses a vulnerable version of OpenSSL during the last two years, your personal information may be compromised.
