Heartbeat SSL Flaw Puts Linux Distros at Risk

I contacted Red Hat late in the afternoon on April 7, and at the time, they were aware of the issue but did not yet have a patch available for users. At 11 p.m., I received an email from Red Hat’s Fedora project notifying me that new OpenSSL packages were available to fix the flaw. Red Hat Enterprise Linux users got access to the patch early on April 8.
