Heartbleed: #InternetApocalypse

Heartbleed is a new exploit in the internet developed by people who just really hate sunshine and all things good. Basically, this exploit allows people to get passwords and other private information on over half-a-million sites that were thought to be up-to-code on their security stuff. Some affected (and popular) websites include (but not limited to) Amazon, Bitbucket, GitHub, IFTTT, Mojang (a.k.a. Minecraft), Reddit, SoundCloud, Tumblr, Wikipedia, and Wunderlist. If you have accounts on any of these sites, I really do recommend that you change your password immediately! Also, Google for some sites that may be affected.
