German Says He Created Heartbleed Bug Accidentally



FRANKFURT—The German programmer who has taken responsibility for Heartbleed—an encryption bug affecting millions of passwords—said on Friday that he accidentally inserted the bug into open-source coding that he was trying to improve.

Robin Seggelmann, a German national who now works for T-Systems, a unit of Deutsche Telekom AG DTE.XE -0.49%  , said on a blog entry posted by the company that the problem occurred while he was working on bug fixes for OpenSSL, a popular open-source software that helps encrypt data exchanges.
