Most of the affected service name by heartbleed can be seen in a list created on April 8. Since the list was published, some service providers have been distributing security patches to patch the existing gap.

Heartbleed referred to as one of the largest and most sophisticated security flaw ever discovered in the history of the internet.

This bug was discovered in OpenSSL, an open-source security protocol used to encrypt sensitive information via the function of SSL (secure sockets layer) in many Internet-based services.

By exploiting heartbleed loopholes on OpenSSL, hackers can steal information, although a site or service providers already do encryption (marked with a "padlock" and the prefix "https" in the URL).

Heartbleed impact on all the sites and services that are running OpenSSL 1.0.1 to version 1.01F. Versions of affected OpenSSL are already widely used in May 2012.

That is, for two years, it has also been circulating undetected in all the service providers that use OpenSSL encryption-related, ranging from applications, internet sites, to banking institutions.

The problem becomes large because OpenSSL is used by 66 percent of all Internet web part to encrypt the data so that the security hole was widespread.

From the user side, nothing can be done to address this bug except wait for the relevant service providers to patch loopholes heartbleed, then change the password as a precaution when the old keyword has been leaked.

After going through the Windows XP boot animation and delivery of short stories by "display error" blue screen of death, a player who plays as a loyal user of Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6 (Windows XP default browser) immediately brought to the gaming arena.

Escape from XP itself is a side-scrolling shooter game that will instantly remind the kinds of past game Contra.
