Heartbleed Bug – Change Your Password

14 Apr

Today I wanted to alert you about
something that affects all of us.

Even i’m taking action on this.

Just something that is pretty major on
the news lately.

If you haven’t heard about The
Heartbleed bug (you can google it).
Or you’re probably sick if news folks
talking about it.

passwords on major sites. Like even
Google recommends changing your
password on their site.

I’ve been getting emails from other
major companies like Prezi telling us

So you can imagine the little sites too.

I just spent the last 4 hours changing my
passwords and found this list of
affected sites was quite helpful.


It’s also good to keep an excel
spreadsheet or something with your
password with a link to change your
password for that site; so if this
happens again, you can do this fast.

Or you can look into a centralized password
security system like LastPass; which
I use the premium version myself as well.
They have a free version too.

This is just a quick note to
help you keep safe and give you some
things we are finding ourselves.
