Heartbleed Bug: A Deeper Dive on What You Should Do

What exactly is the Heartbleed vulnerability?

On April 7, 2014, the OpenSSL community announced that it found a critical vulnerability in the TLS Heartbeat protocol. The nature of such an attack is very similar to a buffer overflow attack, where a remote attacker can exploit the protocol by sending a malformed “heartbeat” request with a payload size bigger than the actual request. In response, the vulnerable server would return a heartbeat response that contains a memory block of up to 64KB in the payload.

Heartbleed exposes the ugly side of open-source security components: In past events, where such Earth-shaking vulnerabilities were found, there was a vendor that would pay for the collateral damages that the vulnerability created. Who would pay for the collateral damages of this open-source vulnerability? It is likely be the users that are using OpenSSL.
