Vyclone is a video app like nothing you've ever seen. Vyclone automatically and intuitively syncs video taken on your phone with footage taken by others around the same happening. You just shoot something and upload; Vyclone does the rest. Within moments, Vyclone begins creating one seamless video with everyone’s content mixed together. So why take static photos or single videos by yourself when you can co-create for the bigger picture? Vyclone, now that’s really social media!

LETS CO-CREATE!

Dragonball Z

My younger cousin is an avid anime fan, so I tried to have him describe an episode to me.  Halfway through I got rather bored and walked off, so forgive me if this Heartbleed analogy isn’t up to snuff.

Our hero is the legendary Super-Saiyin Goku, who must defeat the cruel alien galactic overlord Frieza, in order to get access to the final dragon ball which will allow him to make one wish.  To defeat Frieza, he must use his forbidden “Spirit Bomb Technique”, which requires him to send out a telekinetic message that says “Living souls of Earth…Lend me your energy”.  Goku gathers everyone’s energy  into a massive fireball which he launches at  Frieza… which is totally useless.  Uh-oh.

We can think of Goku’s call for energy as the Heartbeat.

Thinking fast, Goku slightly alters his telekinetic message.  He sends it out again, but this time he contacts all the “Living souls of Namek” – a much larger planet, obviously.  This time, Frieza is unable to resist the cumulative spirit energy and is banished to the death-realm.  With Frieza defeated, Goku gains access to the final hidden Dragon Ball. 

Goku’s slightly tweaked message is in essence the Heartbleed.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go watch SportCenter.

Futurama

Another Heartbleed analogy, coming atcha!  This time using the show that’s not as good as the old Simpsons episodes, but is way better than the new Simpsons episodes… Futurama!

During the battle of Spheron 1, all males of Earth are drafted into military service under the incompetent Zapp Brannigan.  Each day Zapp screens the new recruits.  Despite the fact that she’s far more athletic and military-competent than any of her peers, the one-eyed Leela is denied entry into the service because she is female. 

That’s the Heartbeat.

Worrying for Fry and Bender’s safety, Leela disguses herself as a man named “Lee-Lo” and attaches an extra googly-eye to her forehead.  Zapp Brannigan is unable to see through this brilliant disguise and allows “him” to join the military.  With access to proprietary military information, Leela is quickly able to extract Bender and Fry, saving their lives. 

There’s your Heartbleed.  Now let’s all start talking about how “Jurassic Bark” is the saddest episode of any television series.

Cheers

What’s that?  You don’t know the Heartbleed bug?  Well we’ll explain it by using the tv show “where everybody knows your name” – Cheers!

Whenever beloved bar regular Norm Peterson enters the bar, he’s instantly greeted by everyone there yelling “Norm!”  He’s grown so used to the response, he replies with a jaded pre-canned response, like “Jack Frost is nipping at my nose, now let’s get Joe Beer nipping at my liver”. 

This call-response can be called the Heartbeat.

On a dark and stormy night, Cheers is empty save for bartender Sam Malone.  Norm trudges in, soaked and tired, and is taken aback when he’s not greeted by a call of “Norm!”  He sits down at the bar, Sam looks him square in the eye and says – “Hey Norman”.  Norm is so touched, he ditches his veneer of cynicism, and reveals the trials and tribulation of his love life and career to Sam. 

Norm releasing previously unguarded information due to a slightly different greeting?  That’s your Heartbleed. 

This was a rough one.  Let’s go get a beer.

True Detective

Howdy there…and welcome to Carcosa.  Heard y’all been fixing on learning bout a little loophole floating round on these internets, a little bug called the Heartbleed.  Well if it’s a bug y’all are looking for – y’all should ask an exterminator.

Now the good detectives of Louisiana are fixing to solve themselves a murder.  But this killer, Guy Francis, he ain’t budging or admitting to nothing.  Find him surrounded by two dead bodies in a pharmacy, half-loaded revolver, .386, Woo boy – but they just can’t pin it on him.  No matter how the boys in blue keep asking, “Did you kill those people?” they just can’t get the information they need out of Guy Francis.

That repeated inquiry right there?  That’s your heartbeat.

So when these boys need to know what they need to know, they call me in.  Little ol’ Rusty.  And I looked Guy square in the eye, I approached him on his level, sympathize with the man, tell him insanity plea is the way to go, the drugs made him do whatever it is he did or didn’t do.  Tell him, “Guy, you gotta show that jury that you a different man than your drugged up self in the drug store”.  Ironic, ain’t it?  He asks me for forgiveness for his action – so I look him square in the eye.  “You see what you just did?  You just copped to a double murder.”

That’s all the Heartbleed is now – ask a different way, and you shall receive.  Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a trail of bleeding hearts all over this Bayou, and I’m fixing to find the Yellow King responsible.

Sherlock - The Bleeding Heart

Just as mysteries find their way to 221b Baker Street’s doorstep, another Heartbleed analogy has found it’s way to your Internet browser. 

Sherlock’s powers of deduction are based upon a technique he calls “the method of loci”, where he plots his memories on a mental map, allowing him the ability to revisit crime scenes at any time.  In order to access this skill, Sherlock must have silence and be able to concentrate.  Sherlock and Watson’s latest case concerns the skeleton of a man found in a London basement.  Using his “method of loci”, Sherlock constantly revisits the scene of the crime in his mind, but can find no explanation as to how the man died.

Sherlock’s regular and constant mental re-visitation to the scene of the crime is the Heartbeat. 

On a rainy night, Sherlock decides to mentally revisit the scene of the crime.  The constant sound of the rain tapping on the windowsill slightly alters Sherlock’s “method of loci”, allowing him to see the crime scene in an entirely different light.  Sherlock realizes that the man was purposefully locked and confined in the basement during a vicious London flood so that he would drown.  By comparing weather records, Sherlock deduces the crime was committed over 50 years ago by the building’s corrupt landlord, who discovered his wife was having an affair with the victim.

Sherlock’s slightly different method of information retrieval?  That’s the Heartbleed.  Elementary, really.

Orange is the New Black - Heartbleed

While we’re trying to avoid being incarcerated in a woman’s prison, we certainly are entertained by watching Piper struggle through it alongside a cast of zany characters like Pennsatucky, Crazy Eyes, and Donna from “That 70’s Show”..

Everyday, the universally despised and handsomely mustachioed guard Mendez calls in the pregnant inmate Daya for questioning.  Both disgusted by his lecherous behavior and intimidated by the glorious whiskers that adorn his upper lip, she dodges all his questions.

That’s the Heartbeat. 

After the prison administrator Figueroa mandates all guards be clean shaved, Mendez is forced to take a Gillete Mach 3 razor to his moustache.  The next day, Daya is so surprised by Mendez’ newfound vulnerability and bare upper lip that she folds under questioning and reveals Piper’s upcoming escape plan. 

That’s the Heartbleed.

SUPERNATURAL - The Heartbleed

In the pursuit of appeasing the legions of Supernatural fangirls that apparently use Vyclone, here’s the Heartbleed bug explained via the exploits of the Winchester brothers. 

Dean Winchester, obsessing over the tragic death of his father, visits the same Crossroads Demon every night underneath an old abandoned water tower.  As demons are known to do, she confirms that Papa Winchester is in hell and laughs at poor Dean.  

Their nightly meeting?  That’s the heartbeat. 

One night, Dean and the Crossroads Demon get together for their nightly sojourn beneath the water tower.  Just as the Crossroads Demon begins her mockery, Dean points out that he etched a powerful devil’s trap rune on the underside of the water tower.  With the Crossroads Demon trapped and rendered utterly powerless, Dean is able to extort all sorts of information about Hell from the Demon so that he and Sam can go save their dad. 

And then he shoots the Demon in the head with the Colt. 

That’s the Heartbleed.

The Walking Heartbleed

The Walking dead is a real tough one to do because the premise is so stupidly simple. We apologize for this analogy if you enjoy the show. 

Every day the ‘group’ go down to the fence and kill the walkers with their makeshift weapons. While this keeps them, their pig, and their garden safe it does nothing to solve the problem of the walkers nor does it provide them with any useful information on how to rid themselves of the undead.

That’s the heartbeat.

One day, rather than killing the walkers with their weapons, the ‘group’ attack them with song. The walkers, with their well known perfect pitch, are caught off guard by this new approach and the group’s awful collective singing voice instantly obtaining the gift of speech. Begging the group to stop singing the Walkers spill the beans on how to best fight them off and handover the cure to eradicate the virus.

That’s the heartbleed.

Again, we apologize for the above analogy.

Scandal Heartbleed

We just want to re-iterate that Vyclone is completely secure against the Heartbleed bug. We’re offering up these analogies at the request of our users. 

Olivia Pope is searching for B-613’s source of funding. She keeps asking her father who, while acknowledging it IS being funded, refuses to divulge just how the shadowy agency procures its funds. 

That’s the heartbeat. 

One day, Olivia decides she’ll take a different approach. Aware of her father’s love of fine wine the one who wears the white hat purchases one of the finest wines she can find. Later that day Olivia, while pouring her father a glass of wine even he is impressed with, she asks again. Off his guard, the man once referred to as “Command” proceeds to spill everything he knows about the complex and hidden mechanism that ensures B-613 its funds.

That’s the heartbleed.

Heartbleed - Family Guy

You asked, so here’s Family Guy!

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that novel coming along? 

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that novel coming along? 

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that novel coming along? 

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that novel coming along? 

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that novel coming along? 

That’s the heartbeat. 

One day 

Stewie to Brian “Hey Brian, how’s that wonderful novel coming along? 

By asking in a certain way Brian unwillingly emails his masterpiece to Stewie. That’s the heartbleed. Stewie then prints the novel and has it published, in turn becoming a bestseller on a scale with Dan Brown. 

and our heart truly does bleed for Brian.

Heartbleed - Breaking Bad

SPOILER ALERT!

So, Hank suspects that Walter White is Heisenberg. Hank Follows Walter around at a distance observing him from the front seat of his SUV with his binoculars. He keeps checking back to see that he is there - that’s the heartbeat.

So the Heartbleed would be if Hank turned his binoculars upside down and looked at Walter White and saw him with the Heisenberg hat and glasses. Thus bringing a premature end to Walter’s empire.

Heartbleed - How I Met Your Mother

Alright, no surprise that this is the first request. Here’s the Heartbleed bug explained in terms of HIMYM

So, Barney, played by Neil Patrick Harris is at the bar. 

He sees a girl that he fancies and he keeps checking every few seconds to make sure that she is still there, while he formulates a plan to approach her. That’s the heartbeat. 

So the bug is that if by looking at her she immediately told him all her deepest darkest secrets which he could use to whisk her away thus turning it into a story that he tells all of his friends at the bar.

The Heartbleed.

As you may know, there was a rather large error on the Internet this week (it’s been there for two years - who knew!?). The issue could mean that any important information that you’ve stored on the internet could potentially be accessed by someone and that someone could do some relatively evil things with it. 

Before we begin explaining using a Game of Thrones analogy* we want to let you know that Vyclone is remediated against this openSSL vulnerability. 

For this explanation you’ll need to know about Orell who is played by Mackenzie Crook and is a Wildling and a Warg - Wargs are people with the ability to enter the minds of animals and perceive the world through their senses. 

Now, imagine that Warg controlling a bird that was flying around Kings Landing checking on who is on the the Iron Throne (still Joffrey…still Joffrey and so on). This is the heartbeat. Now, what if the bird could see and hear a vital conversation between Tyrion and Tywin Lannister and relay that back to the Warg all of a sudden there is a security flaw and the King could be in some serious doo-doo unless he captures the Warg or in the case of most of the internet changes his password.

If you still have any concerns about Vyclone’s security please drop us a mail to support @vyclone.com and we’ll be happy to help out. 

For more information on the heartbleed bug please see http://heartbleed.com

*if you don’t watch Game of Thrones please email us and we’ll re-analogise using a different series.

Where in the world is this? The first person to accurately guess will get a Vyclone T! Here’s a few hints: It may look like a Greek getaway spot but it’s actually a paradise found somewhere else in the world. Lastly, a few Vycloners were here the other day to enjoy the beach and some sailing. Guess on! #vyclone
