Recent OpenSSL bug called Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160) causing million of website in trouble. Heartbleed test developed by Filippo Valsorda has been release as open source. I just give some play around with Heartbleed.

BTW, What is Heartbleed bug? Heartbleed bug is actually vulnerability on OpenSSL cryptography library that cause any user to read system memory (Affected on vulnerable version only).

Dalam bahasa Malaysianya, ia adalah kelemahan yang terdapat pada library kriptografi perisian OpenSSL yang membolehkan pengguna luar membaca sistem memori (terjejas pada versi tertentu sahaja).
