What is heartbleed?
Heartbleed is a security flaw which exists in software that is designed to encrypt communications between a user’s computer and a web server. The Heartbleed Bug allows hackers to steal information which would normally be protected through internet applications such as web, email, instant messaging and some virtual private networks (VPN’s).
