Heartbleed fault

I suppose it had to happen. Although it’s unsurprising, the heartbleed fault may get across to the world that no IT system is secure- it isn’t just Microsoft’s stuff (let’s be fair, MS have at least been telling people for years- quite openly- which bugs they’ve found). Try subscribing to Apple’s security mailing list (security-announce-request@lists.apple.com)- stuff streams through for OS X, but it’s quite hard to find.

Bruce Schneier- http://bit.ly/1ea7ECa– implies half a million (minimum) web sites have been completely compromised.

I’m going to (a) change all my passwords and (b) change them more regularly.
