But that has nothing to do with this thread, which is titled "Heartbeat OpenSSL bug does not affect OSX." While I will cheerfully admit that the title of the thread could have been more specific, reading it makes it obvious that we are talking about any manifestations of OpenSSL *included* in OS X. Thus, the statement that OS X is not affected by the bug is true.

All of us as *users of the internet* have been affected by this flaw of course. But that's a different topic. So to is whether or not anything *Apple* is using was affected (the company has already gone on record saying that iCloud and iTunes were not affected).
