The danger of OpenSSL's Heartbleed

It has come to our attention that a vulnerability in OpenSSL poses a sizeable risk to users data.

The vulnerability dubbed "Heartbleed" allows attackers to extract data from servers in 64 kilobyte chunks. 

For those of you who don't know, OpenSSL is an open-source implementation of SSL and TLS protocols.

The core library, written in the C programming language, implements the basic cryptographic functions and provides various utility functions.

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols which are designed to provide communication security over the internet.

The link below will show you the list of websites  allegedly affected by the Heartbleed vulnerability.

We recommend you steer clear from these website until the issue has been resolved.
