Man charged [PHOTO\VIDEO] in Heartbleed attack, Canadian police have arrested 19-year-old Stephen Solis-Reyes and charged him in connection with exploiting the "Heartbleed" bug to steal taxpayer data from a government website, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said on Wednesday.
The security researchers who discovered the bug have also created a website with more information about Heartbleed and the security vulnerability on websites affected.
Solis-Reyes was arrested at his home in London, Ontario on Wednesday and faces criminal charges of unauthorized use of computer and mischief in relation to data.
"It is believed that Solis-Reyes was able to extract private information held by CRA by exploiting the vulnerability known as the Heartbleed bug," the RCMP said in a statement.
