Protect Yourself: Heartbleed Bug

The Heartbleed Bug a nasty flaw that is VERY bad and could effect your personal data. Unfortunately, this isn't something on your personal computer but on the software the provides your online services.  At the very least, you should change your online passwords, especially for services where privacy and security are major concerns. Please see previous articles on securing your passwords or using a password program to help you remember the tougher passwords.

The good news is that "most major service providers should already be updating their sites, so the bug will be less prevalent over coming weeks."

If you have a website, you can check to see if your site is vulnerable by going to HostGators tester.
