Re: On the backend
Let's analyze also the reply of principal web service providers. I made some tests and at 48 from the disclosure of the flaw the most popular website, and almost every bank has fixed the issue. This means that awareness machine has done a good job and that alerting on security and privacy issues is high

Re: Change passwords and user names?
So regarding certificates, the prudent procedure is to revoke the old certificate once a new one is generated and placed into production. That propagates into the CRL and the end user's browser (or application) sees that the old certificate has been revoked and is therefore invalid, and provide notification prior to or prevent further action.

Re: A failure of the many eyes test
This probably only scratches the surface of the kinds of flaws that will be found in SSL implemenations going forward. Encryption is more under the microsocope now.

A failure of the many eyes test
OpenSSL fails the many eyes test. The many participants of an open source project are supposed to detect a major bug before it has a chance to be launched and cause mischief. This is a major bug, and I don't see how someone in the project didn't think to try what the security lab did and discover it.

Re: Change passwords and user names?
@jaingverda I was being facetious there. Most big-time sites would indeed have strong password enforcement.

Re: Change passwords and user names?
@Kelly Jackson Higgins, As a developer I find it appalling that companies are not instituting a password black list for the 100 most common passwords by now. We have it so you have mimum length and several casings but nothing concerning the most common passwords known. Do you have any ideas on why they would still be letting those be used?

Re: Change passwords and user names?
The catch, of course, is getting everyday users/consumers to understand or even know they should change their password after the affected websites update for the flaw, get new certs, etc. Hoping the website owners will alert users of this best practice, and that they won't just go from Password 12345 to Password 123456.

Re: Change passwords and user names?
@Marilyn cohodas, I believe we are re-issuing new certifications to all our domains right now as for the black listing; I am not sure I am trying to find out about that. It's not really in my perview with my job description.

Re: Change passwords and user names?
Thanks for sharing your personal response to to Heartbleed, @jaingverda. What is your organization doing about the certification blacklist issue? What options are you considering.

Curious to hear from other readers about their and concerns...

Re: Change passwords and user names?
For once I don't think you can over stress the damage that has been done by this. As one write up put it we have no clue how long this could have been activily exploited. Changing passwords for everything would be great. Personally I know I am changing my passwords on anything that touches secure data ie finance, health history etc. Also I am going full tilt and finally getting last pass set up with the mobel app so I can have strong passwords for everything and doing the same for my family.

The other issue and it is germane to the discussion of the password reset is how to black list every single certification that was used during this time because we have to assume that they all have been compromised. I fear that were going to see a huge rise in man in the middle attacks here about a year or two from this.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
