Heartbleed – Stay safe

A quick note on Heartbleed. You may have read about Heartbleed. Rest assured that the 45RPMSoftware website has been patched to remove the Heartbleed vulnerability.

Please take a moment though to change your passwords on this, and every other website that you visit, in order to ensure that your personal information remains secure.

It is worth remembering a few simple rules about passwords:

  1. Make them long and complicated. Perhaps use a sentence that you can remember easily, but which cannot be easily guessed.
  2. Don’t use the same password for multiple websites. Best practice should be a different password for all websites but, at the very least, ensure that your passwords for any websites that might store banking information (shopping, banking etc) are different.
  3. Rotate as often as you feel is practicable.
