    Does anyone have any more information about this?

    "The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs)."

    Google Heartbleed Bug. So all users in Canada need to reset all passwords or what did I miss?

    There is no need to change password.. How do you believe that NSA don't know your passwords? You can be easily hacked by NSA if they want ...

    In layman's language, it is a bug which causes the server to leak information that is not supposed to be related to the requester of the information. When the requester requests information, it also has to specify the size of the information. That is where it is vulnerable. If you send a large size, server will return your data, plus invalid data which was requested earlier ( because of the invalid size). The attack can't be targeted, but someone can sit and query all day, hence the craze.

    It has not been totally fixed yet, so be careful using OpenSSL.
