Been in a low-grade panic these past two days with Heartbleed on my mind — changing every single password and encouraging my family to do the same. They think I’m crazy. I think I’m insecure.
Getting some positive reinforcement when gmail and all of the other password-change flows inform me that my new password is “very strong.” Thanks. But feeling I have countless accounts… keep recalling another one while making coffee or parking the car or during a conversation.
When I find out DropBox may be vulnerable — the single place where I keep everything — I feel weak. And when I rush to change to my new password (that’s similar to all of the ones I’ve been updating to these past two days), DropBox tells me my password is “very weak.” Ack!
Now seeing the NSA has known about this security flaw for these past two years. Somehow makes me feel more secure. Or maybe it’s just the weekend.
