On a scale of 1-10, security expert says Heartbleed is an 11, affecting EVERYTHING/EVERYONE on the web.
Unless you know the specifics about a web site (what software they run and what their patch level is) you should assume that you secur communication with that site is simply not secure.
Hopefully major sites will patch soon, but getting honest/accurate/timely communications on this is likely going to be a challenge.
Feels like doomsday.
I do my web surfing only at school, so my home computer is very sheltered, but even then I'm worried.
