According to another website I frequent, OpenSSL has had a security hole for a couple of years(?).
Just heard on BBC news that the Secure Sockets Layer encryption has been breached and that logging on to things like your bank can give your password to criminals. DO NOT go on to change your passwords as this will still allow them to get in later.
STAY away from any site you have to use a password for that you don't want anyone to get into - like your bank.
This is not a scare but seems genuine.
