Canadian police arrest teen in connection to Heartbleed bug attack

Canadian police arrested a 19-year-old man in London, Ontario, on Wednesday in connection to the theft of tax-payer information through the Heartbleed bug.

Police allege the man stole 900 social insurance numbers from the Canada Revenue Agency by exploiting the Heartbleed vulnerability in the OpenSSL encryption software. He faces counts of unauthorized use of a computer and mischief in relation to data.

This is the first charge related to an attack exploiting the Heartbleed bug.
