The Heartbleed bug is associated with a critical vulnerability in OpenSSL that was recently disclosed that affects servers running OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f, estimated at "over 17 percent of SSL web servers which use certificates issued by trusted certificate authorities." At worst, the vulnerability can lead to compromise of nearly the total contents of any server running affected versions of OpenSSL-enabled application, including internal services.
