This Heartbleed virus thing-a-majig is pretty frightening, isn't it?  On a scale of 1 to 10, they're rating it an 11 (YIKES!) so I spent the better part of yesterday working on backing up both my blog and laptop and getting ready to change passwords.  You just don't know how difficult a breach is until you've experienced it... and people everywhere are experiencing it, especially blogs.
