    This bug is why no one should trust open source software considering it was found in the open-SSL crypto code that is open source.

    Microsoft reported that ms accounts and outlook are not affected and the reason is they weren't using open source.

    And no, I am not concerned because I have a ms account and I use outlook

    Yea, they recommended that you change your password. I was surprised that Target didn't recommend users to change their password especially after their last hack which by the way has nothing to do with heartbleed, but still...

    Not if they already patched it. Once patched, they will determine whether or not users should change their password...

    Did Microsoft mention how this affected any of its software, such as Windows Phone?

    Websites that run on Microsoft server's web server, IIS, typically do not use OpenSSL. This is one case where Windows based servers are not affected by Heartbleed. Remember that you shouldn't change your password on affected sites until they put up some sort of announcement. They have to patch their OpenSSL installation, then generate a new SSL certificate. Once this is done, the sites typically post a message informing users to update their password.

    EDIT: Nice posting the xkcd comic. Randall did a better job explaining Heartbleed than most people.

    I'm using a Firefox extension that notifies if a site is affected by Heartbleed.
