Regarding this news post http://www.neowin.ne...y-vulnerability

 

We were affected too, someone registered on Neowin to let us know we were vulnerable, so thanks for that (Y)

 

We have since patched our web servers (yesterday) and we're no longer vulnerable to the Heartbleed vulnerability, but since we use SSL to log you in it's a good idea to update your password.

 

I have changed mine :p

 

Edit: This affects everyone, because everyone is logged in securely.

I'm not fussed if someone logs into my account - they can up my post count while they are at it. Thanks for the heads up though

Everyone logs in via SSL so everyone would need to change their passwords

I've just updated my password. You can expect an email from me tomorrow when I've forgotten what I set it to. :p

Not fair, I wanted to use that one! I'll go with that one then

Odd. Now that I've changed it, the news page will not keep me logged in. I'm logged in when I go to the forums but not when I am on the news page. :(
