Check a site for the 'Heartbleed' bug

Check a site for the 'Heartbleed' bug

The "Heartbleed" bug is all over the news today, and with good reason: It may have compromised all your passwords, credit cards, Social Security numbers, and more.


The bug got access to websites, allowing snoops to see your personal info. Learn more about the Heartbleed superbug.

LastPass has created a quick checker to test which websites are infected with Heartbleed. Check a website for Heartbleed here.

Update: The Heartbleed bug is obviously the focus of a great deal of internet attention right now, and the news, and developments, are fluid. My readers are getting a lot of conflicting and confusing information from these URL checkers. LastPass, for example, indicates a possible problem with Komando.com, though my site was never at risk.

My advice is to change your passwords for now and check back to my blog for news as it comes out from the various major sites. I'll keep you updated!

Are you new to Komando.com? Over more than 20 years, I've been following the evolution of our digital lifestyle.
