“Heartbleed” has become the latest internet bug to surface and global security analysts are warning online shoppers that it is as bad as it sounds. Trey Ford, from Rapid7 LLC warns users to not log in to any account that requires you to enter personal information such as your name, address, and credit card numbers for the next couple days. According to the Boston Globe, it is a big issue to be taken seriously.

So what exactly is Heartbleed?

Heartbleed attacks OpenSSL, which encrypts your computer and makes the information look like gibberish while purchasing something online or filling out an online forum. With “Heartbleed,” the information that is supposed to keep your information hidden gives hackers your personal information like your social security number, or credit card information.

Sites that have already fixed the issue are Amazon, Yahoo, Facebook, and the IRS.

Fun 107′s advice is to wait a few days for the problem to be resolved…then change all of your passwords.
