SAN DIEGO, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Websense, Inc. announced that its CSI: ACE Insight analysis tool has been enhanced with additional analytics to help identify Heartbleed-vulnerable websites. As a free online service, any user can log onto www.aceinsight.com and direct CSI: ACE Insight to inspect a website for key indicators of the Heartbleed vulnerability. This system is backed by more than 10,000 analytics to detect additional security risks.
With proactive awareness, users can avoid revealing potentially sensitive information to cybercriminals by waiting to connect to such sites until after they been able to eliminate their exposure to a Heartbleed attack. In a scan of the top 50,000 Alexa sites, Websense found more than 800 of them were vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
"While Heartbleed has been in the news for over a week, we are still finding a large number of sites that are exploitable via the Heartbleed Open SSL vulnerability," said Charles Renert, vice president of research at Websense. "If people or businesses are using websites that traffic in sensitive information like tax returns, bank accounts, brokerage accounts or anything else they would consider confidential, we highly recommend running that website through our CSI: ACE Insight tool first."
Awareness of the Heartbleed vulnerability comes only weeks after Websense® Security Labs™ reported that 85 percent of all online malicious content in 2013 was found hidden on legitimate websites, making this CSI: ACE Insight announcement additionally comforting for those looking for a safer Internet experience.
