Heartbleed bug puts online passwords at risk

A new, massive encryption bug dubbed “Heartbleed” has recently become widespread: Experts are saying that two-thirds of websites and nearly everyone that’s used the Internet in the last two years could be affected to some extent.
Heartbleed exposes the popular cryptographic software, OpenSSL, a mainstay Web encryption. This bug makes it so anyone can eavesdrop on encrypted sites and access the sensitive data -they’re supposed to be protecting. This can all be done without leaving any trace on the site’s server. Attackers can also retrieve cryptographic keys and passwords and use that info to decrypt any past or future web traffic.
You can securely change your password with SpeedyPassword, a free online password manager and generator, to ensure that your passwords are safe and your accounts remain protected. Please check that the website is not currently vulnerable to Heartbleed before changing your password: http://filippo.io/Heartbleed
