    I have no clue if this personally affects me. Other than one or thirty five or so questionable porn sites I've saved, should I be concerned?

    * Security researchers have identified a very, very serious security hole in one of the fundamental technologies protecting personal data all across the Internet.

    * OpenSSL, the cryptographic software library that an estimated two-thirds of web servers worldwide use to connect with end users and guard against digital eavesdropping, has been vulnerable to hackers for as long as two years. It may be the biggest security breach in the history of the Internet.

    Once again, other than seventy five or so questionable porn sites I've saved, should I be concerned? Questionable porn? Few foot fetish sites. Maybe 17-26 Big Beautiful Women sites. Saving for a friend.

    I know Ill get shit from others entertaining your thread. But I use mobile and leave Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo open all the time. However it seems as long as you regularly log out of this stuff it shouldnt.affect you.

    That is a given. You wonder what part they played in introducing the exploit (they clearly participate in open source). With all the mathematicians and smart people they employ, I am sure OpenSSL is still easily hacked by them.

    To the OP, did you search to find the most pompous and annoying person possible to explain this?

    The media likes to create major life crisis where only minor headaches occur. Its our own fault for rewarding tabloid journalism.

    NSA Responds:
    "NSA was not aware of the recently identified vulnerability in OpenSSL, the so-called Heartbleed vulnerability, until it was made public in a private sector cybersecurity report," the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a statement to HuffPost. "Reports that say otherwise are wrong." A White House spokesperson also stated that no federal agency was aware of the bug.
