‘Heartbleed’ is the name of a major security flaw that has just been discovered, and which is the reason why many must change password.
It has been called the largest security flaw ever on the Web, and it has hit a long series of major websites on a daily basis is used by too many Danes. The error affects OpenSSL, which is a security certificate to the websites.
Our site has a list of some of the biggest sites that are affected by ‘Heartbleed’, and below you can find a list of the most used websites by Danes, who are concerned.
Facebook -Tells that they are not concerned, but nevertheless recommend to change password.
Tumblr -Recommend to change the password.
Twitter -Twitter says that they use OpenSSL, but do not know if they are concerned.
Google (Including, for example, Gmail)-Says that the error has been corrected, and that it is not necessary to change the password.
Yahoo! (Including, for example, Yahoo Mail)-working to correct the error. New password is recommended.
Amazon -the main page Amazon.com is not affected, but their services are.
Dropbox -Has found a solution to the problem, but recommend to change password.
Netflix -have been working on a solution, but has not detected an effect on customers.
SoundCloud -have all been logged out, and the error corrected at the next login, but switch is recommended.
Security firm CSIS tellsthat the most vulnerable sites in Denmark are the pages jobindex.dk and boyfriend.dk, where it is also recommended to change the password. CSIS calms and says no Internet banking has been affected by the bug.
Up to two out of three servers all over the world are using OpenSSL software, and therefore it is one of, if not the biggest flaw in the Internet’s history. The error means that it was possible to pick up a piece of data from the servers that have OpenSSL installed.
The error can be traced throughout the two years back, so it is impossible to say how much information that has fallen into the wrong hands.
