More than 3,00,000 servers still exposed to `Heartbleed` bug: Report
Washington: A security researcher has revealed that more than 3,00,000 servers are still vulnerable to the infamous `Heartbleed` bug.
Initially 6,00,000 servers were exposed to the exploit. One month after the bug was announced, the number dropped down to 318,239, out of which only 9,042 have been patched to block Heartbleed.
However, Considering the numbers, it`s likely that the lightly-trod corners of the internet will remain vulnerable for a long time, as sites with sub-par security standards continue to leave themselves, and their users, exposed , The Verge reported.
The major flaw can essentially allow attackers to gain access to highly sensitive information, including credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, and other sensitive data.
