The God Damn Plane has...!!

The God Damn Plane has...!! Well, you know the rest, so check this out.................

This week it has emerged that a major security flaw at the heart of the internet may have been exposing users' personal information and passwords to hackers for the past two years. It is not known how widely the bug has been exploited, if at all, but what is clear is that it is one of the biggest security issues to have faced the internet to date. Security expert Brue Schneier described it as "catastrophic". "On the scale of one to 10, this is an 11."

The BBC has attempted to round up everything you need to know about Heartbleed.

We're fucked! -

Yes but wait for them  to let the dust settle.


The BBC set about scare mongering and telling everyone to change all their passwords. Not allowing for "all" the sites to apply a patch first, which means if you followed the herd and did change all your passwords you have probably (and advisably) to go back and change them again once each site tells you they have fixed the problem.

Heartbleed certainly caused mayhem at work.  That, plus a security audit coming up on 2 of my servers, I'm ready for a fucking holiday.

Sounds like your company needed to take out a piece on the lane, H dude!

I felt like getting a piece out myself!  After the audit's done, I'll need some crazy time to cut loose.  Lebowski Fest fits the bill, except for the plane fare...  *sigh*.. Beer will have to do.  ;-)

Nectar of the gods...  I'm making some awesome American IPAs of late.  A SMaSH ale with great flavor; next up is an Irish red ale.  Mm mmm...

I'm sceptical about computer viruses, trojans and suchlike jive. The only people who stand to gain from them are the anti-virus software pushers.
It's like what Lenin said... you look for the person who will benefit, and, uh, uh...
I am the walrus.
Etc.
What the fuck are you talking about?

Yes, there's that... but if you knew the black hat community at all, you'd know they use exploits such as Heartbleed to acquire and sell personal data on the black market... it's a daily occurrence.  There's more of that going on than companies who get hacked are willing to admit.  Soon after such a vulnerability is discovered, the talented hackers write sophisticated tools for the less talented script kiddies to use to break into said systems and wreak havoc.  They cost the industry billions a year.

So, it's not JUST for the benefit of MacAfee et al...

It'll be interesting to see how the dust settles on this one.  Like M5 said, changing your password is only good *after* your service provider has patched their OpenSSL software.

In the meantime; fuck it, let's get us a lane. 8)
