but let us start as always with a celebrity thumbs up
As I am a “computer” person various members of my family have been asking me whether they need to change their passwords because of heartbleed
The simple answer is Yes, just do it. Google and Facebook could have been compromised. Interestly the banks (UK), amazon and linkedin all seem ok. The biggest danger is you have probably used the same password all over the place, so if an account is important to you, go change that password. You should check that the site has updated their code/certificate to patch up the security flaw, otherwise you will have to change the password again later. Most of the big internet companies have changed their certificate.
