By now you have (hopefully) heard of the Heartbleed bug which was revealed earlier this week to be a serious flaw in the security of a lot of websites.
If you haven’t gone ahead and changed all your passwords anyway, it might be a good time to invest in password manager software and do a little Spring Cleaning on your cybersecurity.
Set aside some time this weekend and just get it done. Lifehacker has some good advice on what to (and not to) do. Some of the best password manager software is even on sale: 1Password 4 for the Mac is half off right now. I have the previous version, but I’m still going to pick that sucker up.
In fact, take this opportunity to set a little password maintenance schedule. I like to change mine quarterly (and then get lazy about it).
