More Than 300,000 Servers Still Vulnerable to HeartbleedCategory: Bugs / Virus

Although it has been a little over two months since the initial discovery of Heartbleed, which at the time affected around 600,000 systems, it still continues to pose a threat to users worldwide. Robert Graham from Errata Security noted that there 309,197 servers still vulnerable to the OpenSSL bug, which if exploited, can leak account login details. What is surprising is that last month around the same amount of servers were still vulnerable to the attack, which indicates that people have stopped attempting to patch affected systems. While the amount of affected systems will surely decrease over time due to lifecycle replacements, Robert Graham still expects to find thousands of systems still vulnerable even a decade from now.
