Your passwords are at risk

Your website and email passwords might have been captured. Your website sessions can be impersonated because cookies can be captured. If you haven’t heard about this the last few days, this is a real uproar on the Internet.

I’ve spent the last two days listening to podcast after podcast describing the technical details of the computer programming flaw that allows attackers slurp unprotected memory from websites, Tor nodes, and IMAP email servers. Thousands of websites have patched their web servers but millions more email and web servers are going to be slow to patch their services.

Go install Lastpass. Use it’s Security Report feature. Create new passwords for sites that have fixed themselves against the Heartbleed bug.
