If you thought the Heart Bleed bug was a storm in a teacup (remember the Millennium bug), think again. Here’s a small list of sites that have admitted to being affected although, due to the nature of the bug, it’s hard (think ‘impossible’) to know whether any data has been compromised:
- Yahoo Mail
- GE Money
- Myer Visa Card
- Myer Card
- Coles Mastercard
Food for thought.
- check the sites that you visit (there is now a browser extension that will do this automatically)
- change your password
- have a variety of different passwords
and, finally, make sure you check all your financial statements for suspect transactions.
