NSA Reportedly used Heartbleed for National Intelligence Purposes
Reports are being made that the U.S. National Security Agency was aware of the 'Heartbleed' bug for at least two years and was using it to gather intelligence. If the NSA did in fact keep the bug a secret for national security interests, debate over privacy rights and the role of the government's computer experts is sure to increase. The bug, which affects as many as two-thirds of the world's websites, has led to researchers creating a fix five days ago, the Canadian government suspending electronic tax filing and computer companies like Cisco Systems Inc. to provide system patches.
