Heartbleed security bug

(1/2) > >>

Internet users told to change ALL passwords in wake of ‘catastrophic’ Heartbleed security bug

Here is a follow up on the first article:

The passwords you need to change RIGHT NOW because of the ‘Heartbleed’ bug

This initial list composed by Mashable is in no way complete, but includes a grid of information and explanation for services and sites that responded to the report’s request, and will continue to be updated.

Social Networks affected include Facebook and Tumblr. LinkedIn is safe and the status of Twitter is unknown.

Companies affected include Google and Yahoo. Microsoft and Amazon are safe, but Apple is unknown.

Email affected include Gmail and Yahoo Mail. Outlook/Hotmail and AOL are safe.

Skype wouldn't answer whether they were affected, or had fixed the problem. So I'd assume Skype is a no-go until fixed.

A note:  Don't bother changing your password until the affected systems are fixed.  The exploits are still there, and changing your password while it is still effected is useless.
