Heartbleed Bug Demonstrates Deep Vulnerabilities of the Web

shutterstock_68921602 Heartbleed Bug

If you haven’t yet heard, a massive vulnerability in a key piece of security software was announced this week. Researchers call it the Heartbleed bug.

Simply put, it is not your fault. Web servers at banks, airlines, and shopping sites use a type of encryption called Secure Sockets Layer or SSL. Your browser will display a lock icon in the address bar and maybe even change colors to green demonstrating you have a secure connection. Many websites use a piece of Open Source software, meaning nobody owns it and everyone can see the code, called OpenSSL.

OpenSSL is where the vulnerability was found. The problem is that 2/3 of all internet sites using SSL to secure the communication between your browser and their server use OpenSSL.

Why is that a problem? This bug means hackers can intercept what is supposed to be encrypted information between your browser and the bank’s server. In other words, what is supposed to be unreadable is readily readable to criminals.

And it gets worse.

In the past 24 hours or so word has leaked out that the core equipment used for the internet itself and most corporate networks has this bug too.  According to Network World, Cisco and Juniper routers are affected.

This is where it gets really ugly.

Fixing the OpenSSL bug on a website is relatively easy and the majority of websites have already put in the patches. Tracking down every router, taking it offline, and installing patches from the vendors is a very time consuming and difficult process that might take months.

Initially I wasn’t too concerned about you and me. This latest round of news truly has me worried and you need to take action now.

I am now suggesting to you and everyone you know that you take the time to change your password on every bank, shopping, travel, etc. website where you transact business with username/password and/or credit card information.

And then do it again in a week and then again in a month.

Too difficult to remember all of your passwords? There are tools to help you besides sticky notes on the side of your monitor.

Protect your passwords using software like Password Safe1Password, or pwSafe. Those applications are a securely encrypted safe in which to store all of your passwords. Use the random password generator in the software for creating your passwords.

When you use software like those three, use an entire password phrase as the master password. Something you can remember like the old “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”, but make sure to use spaces and capital letters, even use the quotation marks if you’d like.

Here are some basic rules:
•        Always use a password, never let a password be blank
•        Always change a password immediately after receiving one that was given to you
•        Use as many characters as possible when creating a password, don’t just use eight use 16 or 20 or more
•        Use different passwords everywhere, at least for sensitive information like banks or anywhere they might store your credit card information

UPDATE 4/12/14 11:30 PDT – McAfee has a handy tool for testing websites for the Heartbleed vulnerability. You can use it to test a site you might visit BEFORE you go to the website. Click HERE for McAfee’s tool

Applesauce Cinnamon Sour Cream Bread Recipe

ApplesauceCinnamonSourCreamBread

Those who follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter might have seen pictures of my baked goods. It is time for me to start sharing my recipes.

I love apples, applesauce, cinnamon, and bread. So this is a favorite when it is raining out (or sunshine). On all of my recipes I use organic ingredients when available and organic, free-range eggs when available.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

One 5″x9″ bread pan, I line with parchment paper but you could butter or spray

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softer than room temp (I usually stick in the oven for two minutes while it pre-heats)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 & 3/4 cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon cinnamon (to your taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

In a bowl combine all dry ingredients

Using a standing mixer on low, combine the wet ingredients until well mixed. Then slowly (I do it in five parts) add in the dry ingredients until well mixed. Pour mixture into bread pan and bake for ~50 minutes. Remove from oven.

I love the parchment paper for easy removal from the bread pan and then cool until you can touch before cutting with a bread knife. Or just dig in with your hands and enjoy!

Conscious Uncoupling

This Friday, March 28th, will be my farewell show on KSCO Presents. The decision was a difficult one, but after recently taking on new projects with Cumulus San Francisco including a new show on the legendary KGO alongside gigs at KSFO, growing and maintaining the nationally syndicated Ethan Bearman Show (still heard Sundays on KOMY/KSCO and elsewhere), and myriad other projects, this step is a necessary change.

The honor has been mine to serve the loyal audience of the nationally recognized, locally owned, KSCO. Owner Michael Zwerling, program director Rosemary Chalmers, general manager Michael Olson, and everyone else at the family known as KSCO and KOMY have been absolutely wonderful to work with. Every minute has been a joy, and I am extremely grateful for all of the friendships and memories made.

Keep listening and sharing your experiences with me!
