The online world is abuzz about a security flaw called “Heartbleed.” This flaw is found in certain versions of the technology that websites use to encrypt communications, and it allows outsiders to potentially steal website user names and passwords.
Here at LNWM, we have tested all the sites we use to serve clients, and we have found no vulnerabilities that would compromise client privacy and secure communication.
As far as personal sites go, you may want to do an Internet search for “Heartbleed testing tools.” Several websites have been set up to test the heartbleed-related vulnerability of whatever site you’re concerned about.
If the site you test comes back as unsafe, you should wait until it has returned to safe status before changing your password or logging into the site. This could unfortunately take days to sort out, so you might need to keep checking.
