Heartbleed Bug Trespasses OpenSSL® Security Hole

April 11, 2014  Malware News

Security experts recently discovered a bug, known as Heartbleed, which bypasses the encryption protections provided by the widely used OpenSSL® cryptographic library. Version 1.0.1 and beta 1.0.2 releases are vulnerable to Heartbleed, which creates an opening in the encryption technology. This security breach allows private information, such as credit card numbers and passwords, to be accessed unknowingly. To stop this intrusion, website administrators must implement a fix to protect its users.

 PCRx is pleased to report Heartbleed did not breach any of our systems. We have since implemented security measures to prevent any future access attempts by Heartbleed.
