What is the Heartbleed Bug?

 

The heartbleed bug is already being called one of the biggest security threats the internet has ever seen.

The bug has affected a bunch of popular websites and services...and ones you probably use every day, like Gmail and Facebook.  Those sites could have quietly exposed your sensitive account information (like credit card numbers and passwords) over the past two years.

Some internet companies that were vulnerable to the bug have already updated their servers with a security patch to fix the issue.  This mean you WILL need to go in and change your passwords immediately to these sites to be safe.

There are some sites that have been affected but haven't closed the security gap.  Changing passwords there wouldn't matter because they're still at risk.  

How do you know what sites are affected...and which one's do you change passwords on?  

CLICK HERE to see if your site has been affected and if you should change your passwords.

CLICK HERE to open another page to test any site you're worried about.

DO NOT ignore these warnings.  If you don't change your passwords on the sites affected, you're really rolling the dice on allowing your personal information getting stolen.  That wouldn't make for an awesome day.
