Heartbleed bug: how to avoid this massive web hack
Which sites have been affected?
A community-created Github file shows the top 1000 sites in the world (thanks for the tip, Frank!), identifying which sites work with the version of SSL that’s still venerable to the bug. Included in this list are sites like Flickr, Archive.org, Yahoo.com (and Yahoo Mail), Imgur, OKCupid, XDA-Developers, Steam (SteamCommunity.com), Eventbrite, 500px, and Slate - and a whole lot more.
Sites such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Wikipedia do not appear vulnerable at this time. According to OpenSSL officials, both 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta releases of OpenSSL are affected, this including releases 1.0.1f and 1.0.2-beta1.
The fellow who discovered this bug is Neel Mehta of Google Security, while coders Adam Langley and Bodo Moeller of Chromium and ACM prepared the fix included in OpenSSL 1.0.1g. Groups using OpenSSL 1.0.2 will still be affected by the bug until the release of version 1.0.2-beta2.
