(If you haven’t heard about the heartbleed vulnerability yet you should consider to coming out of your pocket universe more often…)
In an amazingly short turn around time since the issue was publicly disclosed, Filippo Valsorda has put up a site called http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/ that will check URLs for the heartbleed bug/vulnerability. This has turned out to be handy this morning for catching several sites that had patched openssl package installed last night but the services hadn’t yet been restarted. Kudos to Filippo!
The scanner service in action:
The code for the site is on github https://github.com/FiloSottile/Heartbleed and is definitely worthy of being starred.
