An untold number of websites have been subject to a major Internet bug called Heartbleed, exposing users’ private information, including passwords and financial details, according to Mashable. It’s being called one of the biggest security threats the Internet has ever seen.
Are you wondering how this affects your cat? Good for you.
Heartbleed is a bug in the code running on the servers of millions of websites, which leaves open a hole in OpenSSL that allows Zzzzzz.
No, not as far as we can tell. Although some cats may be sleeping more than usual, that may just be because they ate a large breakfast, or they found a sunbeam, or it just feels right.
They may be. Picture a future where computers absorb living things, creating a cyber-organic race of mutant crypto-beings. That sort of thing. Coming this fall starring Sandra Bullock and Lil Bub.
Absolutely. Head to all the sites your cat regularly visits and change her passwords. Go in late to work if you have to. Make sure you tell your boss exactly what you’re doing.
Well, actually, you know how your cat sometimes stands there and meows at you for seemingly no reason at all? That was Heartbleed.
Do something with the OpenSSL. Like, bang on it or something.
I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Yes. You don’t see Grumpy Cat sweating this, do you? Let your kitty LOL.
Oh, a banker? Got any stock tips? I’ve got 17 bucks burning a hole in my pocket.
Well, to be safe, you should always be worrying if your cat’s heart will bleed. Hey, I just had a thought — your cat’s heart could be bleeding right now.
Yes! Go to Mashable’s story, The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now.
You’re the one? I’d get on a plane if I were you.
