It is being universally described as “catastrophic” and “the biggest security threat the internet has ever seen”… it is called Heartbleed.
Watch the video above to get a basic understanding as to what HEARTBLEED does and why it is so dangerous. After the short video, check out this website to check the status of any website you might use on a regular basis and see if that site is still vulnerable to this attack or if their site Administrators have already fixed the security vulnerability that is HEARTBLEED. If they haven't, then changing your password for that site is useless until their Site Admins fix the problem on their end.
WINDOWS XP END OF LIFE - IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!
If you haven't already heard...as of April 8, 2014 Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP and stop creating security updates and patches for it as well. This means if another security bug is found after April 8, 2014, (which by the way, is a guaranteed certainty), that bug cannot be patched anymore, and your computer that still runs Windows XP will be very easy for the bad guys to get in to. What does this mean for you? It means anyone who is running Windows XP on their computer that has a live internet connection is literally a sitting duck just waiting to be picked off by the bad guys who use these bugs in the Windows XP operating system to exploit your computer, steal your data, and pretty much do anything they want with your XP machine!
The "ONLY" Windows XP computers that will be guaranteed to be safe from harm will be machines that are not connected to the internet. Or...machines that have had the appropriate measures taken to protect the personal data on them. This involves a long list of preventative measures and changes to your XP machine. There are several steps you can take to protect your Windows XP computer but you really should consider backing up all your data and buying a replacment computer to put that data on at this point. Something that can at least run Windows 7. You didn't think you were going to be able to use Windows XP forever did you? How many people do you know who are still using Windows 95 these days? Not likely very many...if any at all. There are reasons for this. As newer software is created it requires faster hardware to be able to run it. For your information, I can provide you with a relatively low cost dual core processor computer with 4 gigs of Ram and Windows 7 for a small fraction of what you would spend on a brand new system from a big box store. I would also transfer your existing data from your old Windows XP computer to the replacement computer for a low rate as well.
