Heartbleed SSL Flaw

Recommended Posts

I am guessing you have heard about the Heartbleed SSL / HTTPS flaw that has been in the wild for around 2 years now, while being patched this week. Currently here nothing but the service level logins run on HTTPS (host), so users have nothing directly to worry about, short of the whole database being rooted and lifted away.

 

Let me please remind you of good password practices. I use disposable and varied passwords online and otherwise. I really suggest you do as well. Avoiding dictionary terms is a good idea, using other languages should be a pretty decent protection, depending on the tenacity of someone's word list. Alpha-numberic and special characters are always a good precaution.

 

Details on Heartbleed and where you should be wary, are in the link below.
