Kasper Lindgaard, Director Research and Security
Was Heartbleed really that critical? What’s all the commotion about? Why did it cause so much trouble?
Part of the answer lies in the failed disclosure of it. In early April 2014, Heartbleed was the hot topic, not only in the security media, but equally in mainstream vehicles. Very few times in the past has a vulnerability received such extensive media coverage. And even as its newsworthiness lessens, the consequences of Heartbleed continue to develop.
In this webinar, Secunia’s Director of Research and Security, Kasper Lindgaard will present his views on the disclosure of the Heartbleed vulnerability, and how it exemplifies that an unsuccessful coordinated disclosure increases the risk of exploitation. Kasper will also talk about the impact for technology vendors using the vulnerable Heartbeat in their products, and give an overview of the number of products and vendors affected to date.
-Insights into the dynamics of vulnerability research and how it impacts security in the context of the Heartbleed event.
-The impact of Heartbleed for technology vendors.
-Figures on vendors and products affected.
-Learnings from the Heartbleed incident for the industry and for security practitioners.
