    Is this getting any better?


    Heartbleed’ online bug hits 1.5 million users of British parenting site.....

    British parenting website Mumsnet is the latest organisation to have been hacked due to the “Heartbleed” bug, founder Justine Roberts revealed on Monday.

    “Last week we became aware of the Heartbleed bug and immediately applied a fix to close the OpenSSL security hole,” she said in a statement.

    “However, it became apparent that users’ data submitted via our login page had been accessed prior to our applying this fix.”

    All 1.5 million registered users were asked to change their passwords, and Roberts did not know how many users had had data stolen.

    “The worst case scenario is that the data of every Mumsnet user account was accessed,” she said.

    Officials in Ottawa on Monday announced personal data for as many as 900 Canadian taxpayers had been stolen after being made vulnerable by the bug.

    The recently-discovered flaw in online-data scrambling software OpenSSL allows hackers to eavesdrop on online communications, steal data, impersonate websites and unlock encrypted data.....snip~
