The Heartbleed vulnerability continues to sap the life force from various sectors, and it looks like the mobile applications space is not immune. New analysis has revealed that approximately 150 million downloads of Android apps contain Open SSL libraries vulnerable to Heartbleed, a larger number than originally expected.

Earlier in the month, FireEye scanned more than 54,000 Google Play apps (each with more than 100,000 downloads), and found that there were at least 220 million downloads affected by the Heartbleed vulnerability. According to researchers at the firm, the majority of these apps are games, however many are also office-based applications, potentially endangering the enterprise.
