Hello there everyone, this is going to be a short, serious, straight-to-the-point blog about something called the "Heartbleed Bug".

A newly discovered bug in software supposed to provide extra protection for thousands of the world’s most popular websites has exposed highly sensitive information such as credit card numbers, usernames, and passwords, security researchers said.

Given the circumstances, I don't wish to see any users here affected by this bug. There is actually a rather simple way to avoid being a victim of having your passwords cracked. First, check out websites you visit often/daily, and test their URLs in this testing host specifically designed to detect Heartbleed. Second, modify all your website passwords. It doesn't necessarily have to be a complete password change, you can simply modify one or two characters, numbers, or symbols.
