What is the heartbleed bug?

The bug is a vulnerability in a piece of the software that a majority of secure websites (those that start with "https") use to encrypt personal and sensitive information in an attempt to secure it. The Heartbleed Bug has been in existence for more than two years, but was only recently identified by security firms. When exploited, the bug allows hackers to bypass the encryption and view protected communications, including personal information like usernames and passwords.
