Heartbleed

URGENT NEWS!!!

There has been an SSL leak and your accounts are venerable!

This is the biggest hack/venerability seen on the internet for a long time.

Quick backstory on the bug, it is a leak in the SSL or what you would call the security certificate on a website. This is what protects you on sites that your purchase things from and also do social interaction. There has already been a site set up explaining what Heartbleed is – http://heartbleed.com/

A general rule is that any site that takes personal details or you buy products from needs to have passwords changed.

 

The following sites have been effected:

  • All Internet Banking Sites
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Pintrest
  • Tumblr
  • All Google Accounts
  • All Yahoo Accounts
  • Gmail
  • Etsy
  • GoDaddy
  • PayPal
  • Minecraft
  • Dropbox
  • Tumblr
  • Flickr
  • Youtube

 

There are many others but a few sites have confirmed that they have found the bug and fixed it before any leaked data was release. These include the following:

  • Twitter
  • Ebay
  • Linkedin
  • Hotmail and Outlook

and many more

 

There are extensive lists all over the internet but a safe bet is to just change ALL you passwords

 

Thanks
