Heartbleed OpenSSL Bug - CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS - Arynis - 04-12-2014

Hi guys!

You may or may not be aware that a critical security bug happened, affecting majority of the Internet websites as OpenSSL is the method to securely store your passwords. Popular sites such as Google (Gmail, etc.), Facebook have been affected.

You can find more information about Heartbleed here: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://heartbleed.com/">http://heartbleed.com/</a><!-- m -->

The site is perfectly safe, it's just information about the bug.

This website gives you a list of websites you should change your password immediately for: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/">http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartble ... -affected/</a><!-- m -->

The above site is also safe.

Lastly, consider using a password manager such as LastPass to make your life easier.

Stay safe everyone! <3 SysAdmin over and out.
