All current Web servers and web browsers operational on the Internet rely on the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to help users protect their data during transfer of this data computer to computer by creating an encrypted channel for private communications over the public Internet.

Heartbleed vulnerability, a critical flaw discovered in several versions of OpenSSL, an open-source encryption technology that is used by an estimated two-thirds of Web servers is causing serious heartache across the Internet. OpenSSL is the dominant crypto engine behind many HTTPS sites that collect personal or financial information. These sites are typically indicated by a lock icon in the browser to let site visitors know the information they're sending online is hidden from prying eyes.
