The Heartbleed Bug – Change all Your Passwords

Folks:  A huge security flaw was uncovered on the internet in recent days.  It is called the Heartbleed bug and it affects almost every signal site on the web where you are asked for a password to login.  Most major sites like Google, Amazon and Paypal,  have fixed the problem.  What this means is that your passwords have probably been compromised.  I know it is a huge pain but you must change all of your passwords.  You can read about the problem here, or just google the word ‘heartbleed’ and you will be inundated with information about it.

There is also this web site, which will test other sites to see if they have fixed the flaw.
