Affinity Consulting Blog

Unless you have been living under a rock the last several days, you have heard about one of the most serious Internet security vulnerabilities yet seen, the Heartbleed bug. It affects a huge number of Web sites including those offering accounts and services that lawyers might use in their personal and/or professional lives. The vulnerability has been out there for over two years, so there is no way to be sure that your personal or firm logins and passwords, and the data that lies behind those logins, has not been compromised. Chances are you are safe, and nearly all affected Web sites have now patched the vulnerability. But what should you do next?

The site Mashable posted a comprehensive list of Web sites and services that may have been affected and recommendations as to whether you need to change your passwords on those sites. The recommendations make sense, and you can use this as an opportunity to created stronger passwords or, preferably, switch to a cross-platform password manager such as LastPass which will give you strong passwords for all of your logins.
