The Heartbleed bug is not a flaw in the SSL or TLS protocols; rather, it is a flaw in the OpenSSL implementation of the TLS/DTLS heartbeat functionality.

flaw allows hackers access to data that should be protected by SSL and TLS protocols like usernames, passwords, emails and instant messages, credit card information, and more.
