Heartbleed Security Flaw Leaves Several Web Sites Vulnerable

Heartbleed Security Flaw Leaves Several Web Sites Vulnerable

 

The Heartbleed online security flaw has been in the news several times recently. It all revolves around OpenSSL cryptographic software library. That is truly a mouth full of words. OpenSSL is used by numerous web sites to encrypt data sent by their users to access their services. The focus is on usernames and passwords used to log on.

 

Mashable.com published a list of web sites which are vulnerable including Facebook, YouTube , Amazon and Twitter among numerous others. here is a link to the Mashable article telling all which web sites where we all need to go and make changes to our passwords.

 

The good news so far is most banking web sites do not appear to be vulnerable.

 

I use LifeLock for ID theft protection and they have sent alerts about this problem to all of its members.

 

I have changed most of my data here in Katy but I still have a few left. Changing this stuff tends to be a real pain but necessary.
