Password changes
So is it time to go change Amazon.com passwords? Also has Bruce Schneier ever give a bug an 11 on the 1 to 10 scale before?

Re: Password changes
Isn't it always time to change passwords? The rate at which vulnerabilites are uncovered seems to exceed my typing speed.

Leveraging OpenSSL
I was explaining this vulnerability at work today and I asked a question but was given an answer that I am unsure is entirely true so I wanted to bring it here. I stated that OpenSSL is just one platform of SSL to be used. This vulnerability also only happens with a singular version of the platform. Someone I spoke with stated that this is leveraged by Apache servers, which to date comprise of around 53% of the server types out there. Looking at the stats in this article this may be the reason for the high percentage of confirmed compromised servers.

The statement made by the other party was that ALL Apache servers would leverage OpenSSL. My statement was that Apache servers don't need to be running that platform of SSL but I am not entirely certain. Do Apache servers only run OpenSSL or can it run other SSL platforms? Thanks,

Scope
Does anyone know if this affects a typical consumer-grade router?  I have secure Telnet forwarded to one of the WiFi routers in my house that's running dd-wrt.  I telnet into that router to send a majic packet to sleeping machines if I need to remote desktop to them.  Does anyone know if OpenSSL provides the SSL implementation for secure telnet on a typical Linux router build?

Re: Password changes
Well Amazon has already fixed the flaw on their side so it should be safe to change the passwords on Amazon from my point of view

Re: Password changes
My password manager developer said in their official statement that we should change the passwords after the flaw has been fixed on the site you want the password to be changed.Big sites have fixed it already I think, but smaller ones will be a little bit slower so I will wait couple days. Do you think the same? Their thought on this can be read here: http://blogen.stickypassword.com/sticky-password-and-the-heartbleed-bug/

Re: Password changes
Just to be sure you can check the sites to make sure they are patched  http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/  if it tests clean then yes you should go ahead and change your password.  If it does not test clean then try again in a few days.  What I fear is a bunch of people changing passwords out of fear and giving up their credentials on vulnerable sites that did not previously have any data leaked.

Re: Password changes
@Laurianne Amazon.com was not affected by Heartbleed, althought Amazon Web Services was. The big sites are alerting users, so the best bet is to be sure the SSL site has first patched/updated before bothering to change your passwords. Good news: Twitter and Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Wallet, Play, Apps, and App Engine,Chrome and Chrome OS, are among the sites/services not affected.

The only version of Android affected is the older 4.1.1 was affected, and Google is sending patching info to mobile partners who distribute that version.

I don't know if Bruce Schneier has ever given a bug such a high seveAndroid 4.1.1; patching information for

Reduce some heartache...
"Fixing HeartBleed isn't cheap..." so true, that's why OISTE/WISeKey is offering affected HeartBleed organisations a free SSL certificate to replace their most probably compromised prior cert... isn't that cool!

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
