Since the Heartbleed bug has been called by many as one of the biggest security flaws that the world has ever seen, it is only appropriate to update you with more information on how to prevent losing vital information. 

If you visited a website that uses a vulnerable version of OpenSSL during the last two years, your personal information may be compromised. 

You can use this tool: http://safeweb.norton.com/heartbleed to check if a particular website is currently impacted by the Heartbleed bug. 

It is important to remember that although companies who were vulnerable to the bug have already updated their servers, you still need to make sure that you change your password for theses sites.

Also, if you reused a password on multiple sites, regardless if one of the sites has not been affected by the Heartbleed bug, you must change your password on every site! 

It is a very good habit to constantly change your passwords, as well as avoiding using the same password over multiple different sites.
