    Cime The Heartbleed Hitlist: Passwords You Need To Change Right Now

    Long categorized list: very well documented.

    Fortunately, since none of my varied brokers, bank & credit accounts nor Amazon, ebay, Paypal seem to have been breached, I would assume the same would hold true for most others. But as the old saying goes: "Better Safe Than Sorry."
    (Essentially I just ended up changing my google and yahoo related accounts and FB)

    http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heart...ites-affected/


    Here's Last Pass's individual site checker. I'm stongly considering folding every other password into Last Pass to avoid future vulnerabilities.
    https://lastpass.com/heartbleed/

    In short, the Heartbleed bug and its repercussions are complex. Instead of spending the next few days and weeks checking your favorite websites to see if theyíve plugged the vulnerability, though, there is an easier solution: Start using LastPass.
    LastPass, if youíve never used it before, is the best cross-platform password manager in the world ó and itís free to boot. LastPass uses a different password for each of your various web apps and services, so that even if hackers get their hands on one password, they canít go any further. More importantly, though, LastPass now includes a tool that checks all of your websites to see if they are vulnerable to Heartbleed, and whether theyíve updated their security certificates.
    If you use a large number of web services it will take a little time to switch all of those passwords over to the LastPass Vault, but itís worth it. Really, given the shoddy security practices of many large companies, and the shocking regularity of their databases getting hacked, you should use a password manager like LastPass if you care about your online security and privacy. http://www.extremetech.com/computing...ange-right-now

    I heard on the radio the other day, that everybody should change their Amazon passwords, they didn't mention any other sites. Like Vaark said, be safe as it only takes a minute. I've been hit with my bank card before and it took a couple weeks to get it all straightened out, pain in the rear.

    They make the point that you should check with any site having your financials to determine if they've already changed/corrected their SSL protocols and if not, wait until they do, lest any new p/w's will continue to be vulnerable. This is the email I've sent to all the related smaller independent ones like trading subscription and sunpass type sites having my recurring billing info:

    Regarding The HeartBleed SSL encryption breaching virus, do I need to change my pin for this site? And if so, when? Thank you for your prompt response.

    Google Chrome offers an extension that checks for this

    Chromebleed Checker

    It alerts you to the status of any site you visit.

    Thx, good stuff. I'll install it next time i open chrome. In the meantime I did a search on the FF extensions and low and behold, found the equivalent heartbleed checker which is now installed and firing off perfectly. Between that and AdvancedCareSystems site monitor, I should be ok so long as I stay away from the more hardcore of the amputee porn sites.

    Incidentally for what it's worth, FH gets a coded yellow heart icon - which I would assume means "uncertain" or "untested"
