Just thought I'd post this for the people who haven't hard of it already. Basically Heartbleed is a vulnerability in the encryption software used on many sites which protects your passwords, emails, credit details etc. So It's probably worth checking out since a site you go on may have been compromised

I've seen that all over Tumblr, but I don't know what that site even is.
Still changed my password just to be on the safe side.

Just remember that changing your password on an affected site does nothing until the site has fixed the issue and is no longer affected.

Though typically it's a good idea to change your passwords every once in a while anyway.

Along with that Github list that OP posted, you can test your favorite web sites here (http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/) to see if they are "safe" or not. Please note, it is possible to receive a "false positive", but for the most part, it's a pretty good testing site.



/Edit: Might be a good idea to cross check with the LastPass tester as well: https://lastpass.com/heartbleed/

Also, this is a decent list of "mainstream" sites to consider changing your password on:

- The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now
- http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Amazon, Gmail, etc....

There was an article on Kotaku about how south park stick of truth name was changed in peoples library but not in the store. Thats how i found out about it. http://kotaku.com/south-park-gets-name-change-following-internet-security-1561631676

"Valve please reset all partner logins because heartbleed" is what will show up on your steam library supposedly. i dont know personally cuz i have it for 360

I find it sad saying to myself, whenever I see a bug/scam/hack like this where they could possibly have my personal info, that they can't do much worse to it than I have done myself.

Hopefully Crunchyroll will make an official post on the status of their servers.

If you read the list at the link I posted they also list if the site has been patched. Also, I posted a link to a site that can test a site to see if it has been patched:
