Are Apple's internet payment systems vulnerable to the Heartbleed virus that apparently has infected https connections for banks and other businesses?
It's not a virus.
It's a flaw in the OpenSSL code.
A fix was put out before the vulnerability was exposed.
Thank you. I appreciate the clarification about the flaw and information about the fix.
If anyone were vulnerable, they would not announce it. Almost always, these announcements come from interent security firms and watchdog groups.
and if they did announce it, it would be after it was fixed.
Apple on Thursday released a statement saying its major operating platforms, iOS, OS X and certain Web services, are not affected by the massive "Heartbleed" security flaw discovered earlier this week.
