It's not a computer virus, per se, but instead a major flaw in a widely-used encryption software that usually protects your personal information. 

"Because of the magnitude of the mistake, people who are engaging in malicious activities, people whose job it is to try to steal your data, it's made it very easy to do that, without being detected," Turrentine said.
