CVE-2014-0160, termed the Heartbleed Bug, is a vulnerability that allows any user with the right knowledge and/or tools to access secured data connections that would normally be deemed safe and protected. If you’ve ever accessed a site with a security certificate — checked your online banking or email, purchased something online, etc. — you may be affected by this bug, as it allows the malicious user the ability to capture data before it has been encrypted and passed through the server. This presents a significant security concern, and there are resources (listed below) that should be reviewed in order to ensure your browsing sessions are remaining safe.
