#OpenSSL Bug Allows Hackers to See Private Communication

from engadget.com: The world hasn’t yet recovered from the Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL and now there’s news of a new bug affecting the popular open-source security package.

The extent of the issue is extremely limited because we’re talking about specific versions of OpenSSL server. Plus, you need to be using that same server software on a client application, and the attack itself is quite a complicated affair.
