Oh Joy. An Internet Threat. Here’s Help With Your Passwords, Though!
The ‘Heartbleed Bug’ ….doesn’t it sound like ‘Heartbreak Beat’ from the Psychedelic Furs???? Or is that just me???
Trouble with this is …well, here..directly from heartbleed.com is the nature of the problem:
“The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.”
It’s another reminder of the absolute need for a REALLY super, super strong password.
Time to change ALL your passwords. Not just the last character.
I know how hard it is to come up with a new password…..but I found a survey that will come up with a new password for you. They came up with one for me…and it. is. EPIC!!
