Private Investigators – Precise Blog – The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now

The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now:

Ever heard of the Heartbleed bug? Well it’s said to be one of the biggest security threats to have ever invaded the Internet and it’s even had an effect on the likes of Google, Facebook, Amazon and many other Internet giants.

The idea behind the bug was to infiltrate user login information, therefore giving hackers the ability to access accounts, bank details and credit card numbers. As such, most providers quickly worked to incorporate new security patches on their sites, but they stressed the importance in changing passwords anyway, just in case users’ details had leaked, especially if people were using the same password across multiple sites.

Take a look at the Mashable article, by clicking here, which explains the bug in more detail and goes on to show which services were compromised and whether you’ll need to change your password or not.
