Hey, Repa,

Here is what you need to know:

http://t.e2ma.net/message/qvlik/ipbg83

There is a link on this site that takes you to a webpage where you can enter the URL of a website you visit to test it for the Heartbleed bug. I got this information from Zander Insurance in an email and called them to be sure that they sent me the information you see here, and that the site referenced in the link is safe. They assured me that it was, and recommended using it. After testing for the bug, you will want to change your password for that site if you have one, and if the results come back without a problem detected.

I carry ID Theft insurance from IDexperts through Zander Insurance and recommend that you do too if you don’t have ID Theft insurance, or get it from someone. ID theft is epidemic and everyone needs to have it. It is very cheap, only around $145 per family per year. Here’s Zander’s website if you are interested in getting more information about ID Theft insurance:

http://www.zanderins.com/default.aspx

If your identity is ever stolen, you will be glad you have it. Those that don’t have it live a nightmare for months on end trying to resolve the claims against them and clean up their credit and their reputation. If it ever happens to you, just remember that you committed no crime, and you owe no one anything, so don’t be intimidated by collection agencies or anyone else into paying them. Get ID Theft insurance now, and if it does happen to you, you turn the problem over to them and they take care of it for you.

Here’s another website with information about which known, frequently visited websites have been, or may have been affected by the Heartbleed Bug, and some that were not because they don’t use the “affected” technology:

http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/

SiteAdvisor and other users say this site is safe, but this link has user comments on SiteAdvisor saying they experienced spamming and browser exploit when visiting mashable.com, so I would exercise caution. I think the site is ok to read the information they have posted there about the Heartbleed “Hit List” and which sites you visit that you need to change your password. I did go there to read the information.
