This virus/bug has caused security problems at many sites. Most recently (for me) at the Canada Revenue Agency site.
My son works for a security software company, and today advised me that I should take steps to protect myself from this.
Having developed security systems a long time ago, I do not usually react to most threats as I have built my own procedures to prevent such attacks.
This is one that gets my attention, because, as I grow older, I tend to repeat some passwords on different sites.
Her is a link to some info on heartbleed.

I think that this is something that all internet users should be aware of and take appropriate actions.
