(The Wire) Just a few months after Heartbleed was discovered and (thankfully) resolved, another OpenSSL bug is haunting web encryptions. The new bug SSL/TLS MITM was posted by the OpenSSL group in a formal advisory on Thursday. On the bright side, it's not as bad as Heartbleed, but its not-so-catchy name and lack of publicity means it will be tough for the public to tackle as quickly.
When Heartbleed was discovered, it was branded as a major issue very quickly and became somewhat of an epidemic, complete with its own website, a scary name, and creepy logo. SSL/TLS MITM (which I'm going to call SSL until someone names it something like Skinburn or Tummyache) is on a smaller scale than Heartbleed.
