Google has exhausted a lot of resources patching up OpenSSL, so much in fact, the company has elected to create its own fork aptly named BoringSSL. Preparing to move the platform to Chrome, Mountain View recently worked this new implementation into its latest Chromium build. As indicated by its name, OpenSSL is an open source software used for secure connections.

OnePlus One security bug resolved, first wave of phones finally shipping
Well, that didn’t take too long. After being held up by a potential security risk, the OnePlus One is apparently ready for mass consumption.
“We did choose to delay the shipment of the first phones in order to make sure the software was secure and provided the best possible user experience, a company spokesperson told Android Authority. “The CyanogenMod team worked very quickly and efficiently and the Open SSL issues have already been fixed. The first OnePlus Ones ship to early users with invites as early as tomorrow.”
So, if you’re among the those who ordered a OnePlus One through its early release program, there’s a good chance that could receive your new phone within the next few days. Better late than never, right?
