Heartbleed is a server-ends bug. The NSA and cybercriminals search for entrance door in the OS in your Iphone and Android, and they stay very smooth when they found it. A VPN like PureVPN is the only solution for bugs that makes your identity hidden.

Re: It's possible to analyze all traffic for heartbeat messages
If I use vpn service from some vpn providers, for example shadeyouvpn, such service protects me from this danger?

It's possible to analyze all traffic for heartbeat messages
ExtraHop analyzes all traffic to parse out transaction-level metrics, including the heartbeat messages used in this exploit. In this way, enterprise IT teams can easily monitor all potential Heartbleed attacks against any device acting as an SSL server. We've described this capability here: http://www.extrahop.com/post/blog/detect-heartbleed-exploits-with-extrahops-free-download/

Re: Obama Approved NSAs use of Heartbleed for National Interests
Heartbleed is a platform-independent problem that has exposed what is being called a two year old underlying weakness in the OpenSSL protocol. Major websites like Facebook and Tumblr have applied the necessary patches but mobile devices (smartphones) still remain unsafe. Android and iOS users can secure online privacy and internet freedom (until the patches/upgrades come out) by using VPNs to tunnel and encrypt their data. Heartbleed is Causing Damage & You Need to Protect Yourself.

Obama Approved NSAs use of Heartbleed for National Interests
After White house denied .. Obama approved NSA's use of Heartbleed for 'National' Interests.

The problem was lack of oversight/review, not usually a problem unless it's mission-critical like OpenSSL. Code's a mess tho.

Well that is kind of their (NSA) job, to decrypt things and stuff. Can't have the outside world too secure from the alphabet agencies now can we ...
