The National Security Agency on Friday denied a report that it has been aware for years of the enormous 'Heartbleed' security flaw affecting millions of websites, but kept the information secret and used it for its own purposes. Bloomberg, citing unidentified sources, reported Friday that the NSA knew about Heartbleed for two years before the public disclosure of the bug by security researchers last week.
