The Heartbleed bug is now the newest threat to your internet browsing security. The heartbleed bug affects sites that many users visit every day by potentially exposing valuable personal information to hackers. This bug exploits a hole found in the open-source software that encrypts communications for many popular websites, called Open SSL. Normally, a secure website connection between users and websites will show encrypted data for unauthorized parties. The site will also display a padlock and the https extension in the web address bar. With the heartbleed bug, an attacker can now use a special script to translate private encrypted information stored on servers to readable text using the Open SSL software. Some hackers can even create fake websites to trick people into handing over their personal information, such as credit card numbers for online shopping. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/1nFFQ9E
