Web Security Flaw Continues to Leave Millions Vulnerable

March 26, 2015  Malware News

A security flaw in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols identified in early March is still affecting nearly 2.2 million hosts who are continuing to accept 512-bit keys, reported IDG News Service. The flaw known as FREAK, which stands for Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys, allows encrypted traffic to be intercepted by potential attackers. Besides discovering these vulnerable hosts, researchers with the Royal Holloway of the University of London also found that many hosts use the same 512-bit public RSA key. With that information, an attacker could easily decrypt traffic exchanged by thousands of devices with just one 512-bit key.
