Heartbleed is a server based virus which impacts secure connections, such as online banking and eCommerce, which use encrypted connections such as OpenSSL.
You can do a number of things to mitigate infection:
- If you use Google Chrome browser, you can install Chromebleed, which checks each site you visit and alerts you if the server has not been repaired.
- Have a look at LastPass - saves your passwords securely and it's free; we have used it for a number of years now.
- Some experts are suggesting to reset your passwords, but until we know the extent of the infection (and that it's a server issue) it's not clear that this is necessary.
