As you may have heard, there was a serious vulnerability on the Internet discovered on April 7th. This bug, known as Heartbleed, enters through a vulnerability in the OpenSSL library. The newly discovered weakness in OpenSSL would have allowed for memory and private information on any infected website or server to be read by virtually anyone on the internet. In other words, if a website were infected, it would be possible for attackers to monitory all communication between the website and end users, and steal data directly from the websites and users. This data could include usernames, passwords, and other sensitive information.
We recommend all internet users reset their passwords on accounts containing sensitive information, such as bank accounts or online stores where your credit card data is saved.
