Change all your passwords



Major security flaw


Quote:

Several tech firms are urging people to change all their passwords after the discovery of a major security flaw.

The Yahoo blogging platform Tumblr has advised the public to "change your passwords everywhere - especially your high-security services like email, file storage and banking".

Security advisers have given similar warnings about the Heartbleed Bug.

It follows news that a product used to safeguard data could be compromised to allow eavesdropping.

At work I have to change my password for 3 systems every 6 weeks. It's a major PITA. I also have to lock my PC whenever I walk around the room in case some fly pupil sees something they shouldn't. I'm much less safety conscious at home but I have over 20 different passwords and most alert my mobile if someone tries to change them
