  1. http://heartbleed.com
    • Been there for 2 years
    • Affect a lot of sites that use SSL/TSL, a security system
    • Many types of information can be leaked (passwords, credit card numbers)
    • Hackers can impersonate other people by using their leaked decryption keys
    • Changing passwords can provide slight protection
    • It is hard to tell if a system has been tapped into because of the lack of a history
    Tell me if anything I said was wrong.
  2. HTTPS/SSL/TLS - 443. Rest In Peace.

    I'm sure this will help speed up the development of other (more secure) authentication protocols, so
    it's not really necessarily a bad thing, in my own opinion.
  3. Well, we're all Boned!
