Newsletter – April 2014

The big security news in April was, without a doubt, the vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL crypto library. The vulnerability, dubbed “Heartbleed”, is discussed at length in the latest edition of the monthly newsletter.

Software is created by humans, and humans are fallible. It could happen to anyone. However, there are some interesting peculiarities regarding this particular bug. Read the newsletter to find out more.
