The Heartbleed Bug has been in the news a lot over the last few weeks, and now according to a recent report, the majority of websites that were affected by Heartbleed have fixed their websites.
According to Sucuri Security, the worlds top 1,000 websites have fixed the Heartbleed bug, and out of the top 1 million sites on the web, around 2 percent are apparently still vulnerable to the bug.
After 10 days of massive coverage, we expected to see every server out there patched against it. To confirm our expectations, we scanned every web site listed in the Alexa top 1 million rank. Yes, we scanned the top web sites in the world to see how many were still infected.
The results were interesting:
Top 1,000 sites: 0 sites vulnerable (all of them patched)
Top 10,000 sites: 53 sites vulnerable (only 0.53% vulnerable)
Top 100,000 sites: 1595 sites vulnerable (1.5% still vulnerable)
Top 1,000,000 sites: 20320 sites vulnerable (2% still vulnerable)
It would appear than many sites have taken measures to protect themselves and their users from the Heartbleed bug, we also heard recently that millions of Android devices were potentially affected by the bug.
