Hey Tonka,
How vulnerable am I to this bleeding heart thing? Should I stop viewing my account online?
How can I tell if my bank is ok?

My company's IT security sent out a link to a page that will test web sites.

Go to http://filippp.io/heartbleed

You can enter in the web addresses of places you want to go and it will tell you if that site has applied the necessary patch.

4 hours after you posted this I, too, tried Topix and got the timeout message.

On April 12 Mashable had a grid list of affected sites. It included Google, gmail, YouTube,Facebook and Yahoomail as well as a lot of others. It did not post a link for checking other sites and at this point it is 48 hours old . Here is a the link but they don't seems to have added anything.

After thinking about this and reading the FAQ stuff, I believe that topix is not affected (effected) by this because they do not use SSL (whatever that is), so the timeout is probably because there is no request at a specific port.

I received this message discerning Heartbleed Bug from our corporate IT vendor at 9:30 p.m. Chicago time.

I pass it along for general use.

Heartbleed SSL Vulnerability


By now, I am sure you have heard the local news and global coverage related to the SSL Heartbleed Bug. Although we have proactively checked our clients systems and installed patches where necessary as part of our Managed Services, this was only one of the steps to protecting your information.

Many of the popular sites you regularly use were susceptible to this vulnerability. This vulnerability could allow an attacker to read sensitive personal information and passwords and then use that information to access your accounts.

With this said, I recommend you take two basic steps to protect your accounts.

1. Change your password for sites such as Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo, Instagram, etc. A complete list of sites can be found here. http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug...



2. Do not use the same password for each site. Although, it may be difficult for you to remember the passwords, don't make it easy for the preying eyes and Hackers to gain access to your accounts.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

We got spoiled by a couple of sunny days over the weekend. Back to rain, with a chance of snow overnight. I am so sick of crappy weather!

Welcome to life, baby

I made 15k less, cry me a river

Do we still blame Bush or are we blaming Regan now? Maybe the Koch brothers. Who the hell's in charge now?? Maybe those dam House Republicans are to blame? I'm so confused... I'm just gonna blame whoever my leaders tell me to

"What I did was embarrassing and stupid, but it wasn't a crime," she said at the time. "What he did to me was criminal."

Hmmm....so if I jump into the front seat of a cab being driven by a female, pull my underwear off and play with my c0<#, start groping her crotch, and try to talk her into having sex with me, I shouldn't get charged with a crime? I should only be embarrassed by my behavior? Damn. Hot bitches just live in a different reality.

Women like this are the reason that assault and rape victims are so often dismissed. Here's a tip - keep your clothes on and your hands to yourself, unless you are with your SO.

It is probably a good idea for cabbies to insist that passengers fill the back seat before allowing anyone to sit in the front passenger seat. People are crazy, esp when they have been drinking.
