A major security flaw in OpenSSL was revealed on April 7th, 2014. The issue was a flaw in the coding of the OpenSSL security protocol used on some webservers to secure your connection. For most home users, there is nothing you can do directly to protect yourself from this issue, as it exists on the webservers, not on your home computer. OpenSLL is a free open-source package typically used on Unix/Linux servers and not Microsoft servers.

You should pay special attention to any emails from websites you use or shop at recommending password updates, and promptly update your password. If you want to be extra vigilant, this might be a good time to update all your online passwords just to be safe.
