The following chart shows the number of vulnerable sites of Alexa’s top 10,000 sites over time. Such data can be gathered using the heartleed-masstest tool. The chart shows how fast (or slow) the different site owners react to patch their systems. There was no ongoing check between 2014-04-08 and 2014-04-09, which explains the gap in the chart.
