Years after its been reported, it still remains a risk. A security bug, discovered in 2014 named “Heartbleed” may have made your login/passwords vulnerable on affected sites. You are encouraged to change your passwords if you’ve entered sensitive information on vulnerable websites.
“The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users,” a description of the vulnerability written by Codenomicon says.
