An encryption flaw called the Heartbleed bug has affected many popular websites and services--ones you might use every day, like GMAIL and Facebook--and could have quietly exposed your sensitive account information(such as passwords and credit card numbers). Two useful WEB sites that explain the issue and list the status of the most popular websites are:

It's always a good idea to change your passwords frequently, use dual-factor authentication when available, and DO NOT re-use the same password for multiple accounts or services.
