    Heartbleed Bug Exploited Over EAP


    Just when we thought Heartbleed had bled out:
    Heartbleed Bug Exploited Over Extensible Authentication Protocol
    http://it.slashdot.org/story/14/06/0...ation-protocol

    I am not up enough on this to know if its 'a serious' issue but I don't think I'll ever want to use my phone as a wallet...

    It seems only Android 4.1.1 contains the vulnerability, but there are plenty of phone apps that are also vulnerable.
    As for using your phone as a wallet, I'm sure the app that runs this will not have the vulnerability and will not install on vulnerable phones.

    cheers, Paul
