    A massive breach in internet security has exposed millions of people to the possible theft of sensitive information.

    'Heartbleed' is a security bug built into software code OpenSSL, which is used by more than two thirds of active sites on the internet.

    The bug has raised vulnerability concerns across much of the internet with fears over what kind of damage may have been done.
