Global business may still be vulnerable to Heartbleed
CNBC - 04/07/2015
One year after the massive security flaw, Heartbleed, was revealed to the public, a new study found that up to 74 percent of companies in the Global 2000 are still vulnerable to being hacked via the bug.
The flaw grabbed widespread media attention when it was revealed in 2014, and made countless businesses scramble to fix their servers. But a study released this week by Venafi, a Salt Lake City, Utah-based cybersecurity firm, shows those efforts were not always enough.
Cybercriminals can still exploit the vulnerability to gain usernames and passwords as well as sensitive business and financial data, the study found.
