6 New Security Vulnerabilities Discovered In OpenSSL

The popular encryption software, OpenSSL, that is used by many online retailers and email providers released important news today about six additional security vulnerabilities discovered in their code. These vulnerabilities are similar to the the widely publicized Heartbleed bug that prompted internet users to change their login credentials, recently. As with the Heartbleed bug, OpenSSL has released “fixes” or “patches” to remedy the situation.
