You should still change your password for a lot of sites. (especially if they reported having the issue and resolving it)

There's a Firefox extension out called Heartbleed extension that tells if sites are currently vulnerable. It shows up as untrusted because Mozilla hasn't vouched for it yet. I found out about it from OWASP - a security organization - so I trust it. (Code is in GitHub if you want to read it.)

And yes, I verified this site shows as Green == Good!

Ah, so there is a good site to my bank account being overdrawn at this moment! (Seriously actually, it is.)

Thanks for the advice. I did not know that hearthbleed was that dangerous.

Today, my Netcraft extension is flagging this site as vulnerable to Hearbleed. (Certificate is changed but doesn't have a new public key)

cf. http://toolbar.netcraft.com/help/faq/index.html#heartbleed
 
Seriously Rick? Seriously? You might as well just read this tiny ad:
