    This is interesting...

    I read somewhere earlier today (will try to dig up the source) that only android 4.1.1 was vulnerable

    Yea. I have to ask.
    1. Is this a ATT NOTE3.
    2. Is it rooted or have anything done to change the firmware from stock.

    Actually I was referring to the OP. I ran the scanner from the Lookout folks and it says pretty much the same thing. Yes my Note 3 has a effected version, but the feature the exploit uses is not enabled.

    Checked mine. It isn't enabled so I am okay.

    T-Mobile Note 3 running 4.3 still.

    Very interesting video. Very miss leading though. It is a big problem but that is sensationalism at its best. The guy doesn't have a clue, the women is a little bit better, and the text on the screen seemed most accurate. Which do you think got most people's attention.

    The guy makes it seem no one is secure and everything is wide open.

    Oh well.

    The phone isn't vulnerable. If you look at the several subsequent post the feature in question is disabled by default. You only need to worry if you are using a custom ROM and the person that made it, turned it on.

    This is also a server side exploit, not client side.

    Probably a dumb question, can PC's be affected by this virus? I know it can't get into Apple devices, but some of my apps i have on my phone, tablet & PC. Like AC Forums,Evernote etc

    That's off-topic. This forum is about AT&T Note 3s, not about Heartbleed on PCs. (Also, Heartbleed isn't a virus.)

    SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is one of the main method for any computer to create a secure connection. That includes Apple. The key here is what version of SSL are they using and is the heart beat functionality turned on. The Note seems to be a great example of a device having the effected openSSL code but not using the feature so it is still safe.

    This isn't a virus but a software bug. Any computer device mobile, pc, apple, Linux, tablet could be effected if it uses the effected version of OpenSSL and had that heart beat feature turned on.
