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.
Apple has released an update to their OS X operating system for Macs and to iOS for iPhones and iPads. These updates fix a serious security flaw that opens the door for your devices and your personal data to be compromised. You should update everything now. You can read about the security problem here.
On your Mac, click the Apple icon on the left of your menu bar and select Software Updates.
On your iPhone or iPad, go to the Settings app, select General and Software Updates.
