Malware Analyst Report
Symantec is aware of and currently investigating the OpenSSL vulnerability, dubbed Heartbleed, which allows attackers to read the memory of the systems using vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL open source library. This allows access to sensitive information such as private keys of certificates and login credentials, or other personal data. Advice for Consumers 1. Be aware that your sensitive data such as passwords may have been seen by a third party if the sites you visit used a vulnerable version of the OpenSSL library. 2. Monitor any notices from the vendors or companies you use. Once a vendor has communicated to you to change your passwords, do so promptly. 3. Watch out for potential phishing emails from attackers asking you to update your password. To avoid going to an impersonated website, stick with the official site domain. 4. Stick to reputable websites and services. They are most likely to have immediately addressed the vulnerability. 5. Monitor your bank and credit card statements to check for any unusual transactions
