(2014-04-09) SSL "Heartbleed"

A very serious vulnerability has just been found in OpenSSL (a software package). The vulnerability is named "Heartbleed" and may be used by attackers to retrieve the private key of an SSL-certificate. This attack can be used to compromise a server and negate the encryption in the protocol for all HTTPS-connections to the affected server. The primary target of this attack is thus the server and not the client. Work is in progress to analyze and assess how this affects "The ERICADE Network". I'll keep you posted.
