Heartbleed
#1
Have you guys heard about heartbleed?
The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users. - taken from heartbleed.com
So, it was revealed that several large companies (Google, Facebook etc.) were compromised. Are you secure?

I believe Zane was probably the first to know, lol. Luckily we weren't vulnerable to it.

How were you invulnerable? Isn't it widespread, or was, as Zane said, PP "servers/website" patched with great speed?

Hacked a few sites using it, making a decent profit.

Heartbleed isn't a hack, it is a part of a poorly coded website.
