The web is still reeling from the aftereffects of the Heartbleed bug and here we are now, with yet another bug discovered in OpenSSL. This bug allows an attacker to launch a man-in-the-middle attack, tapping into private communications and modifying traffic.
We extensively covered the vulnerability in the OpenSSL protocol that put three-quarters of the internet at security risk recently and came to be known as 'Heartbleed.' Now, a malware is being spread masquerading as a 'Heartbleed Bug Removal Tool.'
The Heartbleed bug that recently wrapped the internet in a whirl of massive security vulnerabilities, hints that it's time for us to rethink digital security. Below are a few possibilities as to where the digital security is headed in the future, and where it should be headed.
