"The Heartbleed Bug

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."

UPDATE - >> SOLUTION

"Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas have created a solution that fixes the Heartbleed vulnerability, as well as detects and traps the hackers who may be using it to steal susceptible data.

The sophisticated technique called Red Herring was created by a team of computer scientists to automate the process of creating decoy servers. It makes hackers think they have gained access to confidential, secure information, when actually their actions are being monitored, analyzed and traced back to the source.

“Our automated honeypot creates a fixed Web server that looks and acts exactly like the original — but it’s a trap,” said Dr. Kevin Hamlen, the team’s leader. ”The attackers think they are winning, but Red Herring basically keeps them on the hook longer so the server owner can track them and their activities. This is a way to discover what these nefarious individuals are trying to do, instead of just blocking what they are doing.” Continues.
