It’s been a week since the Heartbleed vulnerability bomb was dropped on the Internet, and the aftershocks can still be felt. The good news is that many of the sites you’re browsing have already been patched with good fix or were never vulnerable.
Which companies answered the bell and have plugged the Heartbleed hole? Here’s a very quick list of the big names:
- Google (including Gmail)
- Yahoo! (including Yahoo! Mail)
- OK Cupid
Since these sites have been patched, you should change your password immediately on any of them that you use. Heartbleed had been floating around undiscovered for two years. Even if you just changed a password on one of these sites recently, you need to update it again now that Heartbleed eavesdropping is no longer possible.
So whose servers weren’t affected?
- Every bank everywhere
