2/3 of organizations with public facing vulnerable to hacker attacks
The Heartbleed security vulnerability, publicised in March 2014, received an abundance of media attention as it exposed over 1 million web servers worldwide relying on OpenSSL version 1.0.1. The bug was corrected shortly after the leak with the release of OpenSSL v1.0.1g on April 7th 2014. However, estimates suggest that around 2/3 of organisations with public-facing systems are still vulnerable to the attack.
