    If you've looking to generate and manage secure passwords, which is a very good idea after the heartbleed exploit - KeePass is a very handy tool to this:

    http://keepass.info/

    It's free and will encrypt all of the passwords you generate, so it's not much hassle to have unique passwords for most sites :).

    Just a heads up in case anyone is looking for this!

    Cheers Ian,
    Looks pretty cool. I especially like the FREE part.
    I use Lastpass, but it costs me $12 per year.

    Might be time to have a look at keepass, mainly due to the cross platform integration.

    I haven't read the article yet, it's 3 am here. So what are you using to manage your passwords?

    Ink pen, piece of paper, file folder, desk drawer, lock and key.
    Makes me feel secure anyway.
    And if it's 3:00 A.M. try to get some rest, preferably some actual sleep.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    KeePass should still be safe (or at least, not vulnerable in the same way). It's an offline password manager, so you'll need to keep the password file on your device somewhere - but it's not too hard to sync it to a phone/other PCs if required :).

    Nothing to worry about, this is old news! It was disclosed 9 months ago and fixed 9 months ago.
    Just more FUD from the media.

    HERE is the LastPass Blog about it.
