All current Web servers and web browsers operational on the Internet rely on
the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to help users protect their data
during transfer of this data computer to computer by creating an encrypted
channel for private communications over the public Internet.

Heartbleed vulnerability, a critical flaw discovered in several versions of
OpenSSL, an open-source encryption technology that is used by an estimated
two-thirds of Web servers is causing serious heartache across the Internet.
OpenSSL is the dominant crypto engine behind many HTTPS sites that collect
personal or financial information. These sites are typically indicated by a
lock icon in the browser to let site visitors know the information they're
sending online is hidden from prying eyes.

Cybercriminals could have exploited this bug, which has been known for around
2 years but undisclosed until now, to access visitors' personal data as well
as a site's cryptographic keys, which can be used to impersonate that site
and collect even more information.

As part of it corporate philosophy and stewardship, and on behalf of OISTE;
the non-profit whose objective is to secure the global Internet; WISeKey is
offering 1 free Trusted SSL certificate to any organization affected by
Heartbleed.
