In one of last week's blogs we talked about how to create safe and secure passwords for your internet usage.
Well, out timing couldn't have been better.
It appears that the "Heartbleed" bug is a clear and ever present danger to everyone now and it has taken root and is growing.
I really don't understand the technical "tomfoolery" that goes on behind the scenes if you or a website you visit is affected by this bug.
Somehow, it works it's way into your personal information and history of websites that you visit like Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and many others.
This "bug" allows the attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.
It just doesn't sound good does it?

Change your passwords !!!
The Heartbleed bug was discovered over a week ago and is causing quite a stir around the web.
If you haven't changed your passwords yet, this is your first order of business this week.
The website "Mashable" has published a wonderful comprehensive list of which sites you need to change.
I know it's a hassle but why take a chance, huh?
While you are at it, you should definitely change all of your online passwords you run into over the next couplke of weeks.
Better safe than sorry I always say.
