Heartbleed bug

And the bubble burst.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like anyone who knows a bit about world wide web really thought we are safe there. But it seems that no matter where we turn, we find out more about data leaking, surveillance and how much people who want to can find out about each and every one of us.

And it seems that the recent break is a result of a genuine mistake.  Can you imagine what can be done when someone’s trying to get information on purpose?

Can we NOT think about it? Do we have the luxury? How much is too much when it comes to security ‘paranoia’ which, it would seem, is not a paranoia at all?

Come on folks, go change your passwords (Especially if you have accounts mentioned on this very handy list).  I know it hurts. But you will feel better when it’s done.
