When it comes to Heartbleed, you can’t be too careful [CARTOON]

Sure, you’ve changed a bunch of passwords, but are you doing all you can to protect yourself?

Can you really be too careful?

Well, this was another week in which I seemed to spend too much time reading about Heartbleed and trying to figure out what passwords I needed to change. Just to be extra safe, I’ve also changed the locks on my house as well as my regular order at Starbucks and am considering other safety precautions. Nothing’s off the table. I figure better safe than sorry, right?

Have a great, secure weekend!
