I heard about this a few days ago in this article from arstechnica. I checked with a top notch security guy I know (thanks Rob) and he confirmed this was a bad one. He also mentioned that it was bad enough to keep him busy for a while but he was happy about that as it would not only let him make the important fixes but also help customers in other security areas – which he knows they need. So pretty good outlook. But today I heard several times some bad information on this issue. So I am going to share some important info, and than some links and that will be it.
Do not change your passwords UNTIL the vendors tell you they have updated / fixed their site and if you have already you will need to change them again.
