Heartbleed is a security
vulnerability in OpenSSL, which is software used to protect and encrypt
sensitive information. The vulnerability lets a hacker access the memory of
servers where sensitive information can reside. According to Netcraft, 500,000
Web sites could be affected, which puts user's sensitive personal data --
including usernames, passwords, and credit card information -- at risk of being
intercepted. The OpenSSL vulnerability also extends to the potential theft of a
server's digital keys that are normally used to encrypt communications and thus
an attacker could get access to a company's secret internal documents.
ILTA is asking our vendor community to post comments below stating
