LastPass Now Checks If Your Sites Are Affected by Heartbleed

From the LastPass blog at: http://blog.lastpass.com/2014/04/lastpass-now-checks-if-your-sites-are.html

Yesterday we informed our community of the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug. In our blog post, we explained how this security issue impacted our service and what our users should know about the situation. We also built a tool to help our users start checking to see if their sites and services had reissued their certificates, so that users would know if it was safe to start updating passwords for those sites: https://lastpass.com/heartbleed

To help our users take action and protect themselves in the wake of Heartbleed, we've added a feature to our Security Check tool. LastPass users can now run the LastPass Security Check to automatically see if any of their stored sites and services were 1) Affected by Heartbleed, and 2) Should update their passwords for those accounts at this time.

The LastPass Security Check can be run from the LastPass Icon menu, under the Tools submenu. 

In the Security Check results, we alert you to sites affected by Heartbleed:



We will continue to update the Security Check recommendations based on which sites we have seen take action and where it is safe to update your passwords. We'll monitor the situation in general and keep our community posted. 

If you're not using LastPass yet, now is the time to get started with organizing and managing your passwords, and use our tools to generate new passwords for your online accounts.
