So this week, we learned of the single biggest security vulnerability the Internet has ever seen, known by the gruesome moniker of “Heartbleed“.
The seriousness of this issue is matched only by the stunning ineptitude that caused it in the first place. It’s pretty much the result of a lazy programmer who’s now saying “my bad”.
Bottom line is, it wouldn’t hurt to go change your passwords for the most popular sites you regularly visit.
Also, every time I think of Heartbleed, I suddenly have this gem stuck in my head. And now you do, too.
