A 19 year old Canadian student has been named as the first man to be charged with offences relating to the Heartbleed vulnerability.
According to CBC, Stephen Arthuro Solis-Reyes has been charged with stealing over 900 security security numbers, with one count of unauthorised use of a computer and one count of mischief in relation to data.
He had been threatened to be arrested in the middle of a class at Western University in London, Ontario, where he father teaches computer science, but voluntarily turned himself in to police on Tuesday.
It is alleged that Solis-Reyes was able to extract the private information from the Canadian Revenue Agency by exploiting the Heartbleed vulnerability. He is set to appear in an Ottawa court on July 17th and could face a maximum of ten years in prison if found guilty.
