Heartbleed Bug: Public Urged To Reset All Passwords

I guess now is as good of a time as any to reset all your passwords. Thanks to everyone that sent this one in.

Google Security and Codenomicon - a Finnish security company - revealed on Monday that a flaw had existed in OpenSSL for more than two years that could be used to expose the secret keys that identify service providers employing the code. They said that if attackers made copies of these keys they could steal the names and passwords of people using the services, as well as take copies of their data and set up spoof sites that would appear legitimate because they used the stolen credentials.
