In light of recent events I feel compelled to write this article on protecting your accounts. This advice doesn't pertain to XPG specifically, but is a broader message to all of our members. You may have heard about a recent security flaw that has affected thousands of websites security. Heartbleed was a bug in OpenSSL, introduced in a new version of the software at the end of 2011, that under some circumstances allowed Internet attackers to steal data from the memory of a server in 64KB chunks. That data could include passwords or encryption keys, which could then be used to break into users’ accounts or even make malicious sites mimic real ones and collect usernames and passwords. We were not affected but you may have still been though! If you are one of these people that use the same password for multiple websites then you are at risk. My advice to you would be to download a browser addon such as LastPass. Lastpass not only prevents you from having to type in passwords , it will also generate safe passwords for you and notify you if you have the same passwords for one or more websites and prompt you to change them. Its free and you can also use it as a key by having Lastpass on a USB stick, so you can only sign into sites once you insert the key! Chances are you could of visited a site that was affected by this recent security flaw, so just take extra precaution and take time out right now to change your passwords please!!
