The White House, National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation and any organization that uses Apple or Google devices are all vulnerable to a new and dangerous bug. It's called the FREAK flaw, and the number of devices vulnerable to it is enough to make anyone's head spin.

This one is worse than Heartbleed, because it doesn't just affect specific websites. It gives hackers the key to file encryption. The government intervention that created the FREAK bug leaves everyone vulnerable, the government included.

When we first found out about the dangerous FREAK flaw, we thought it only affected Android and Apple gadgets. Now we know that Microsoft Windows is also vulnerable.
