A computer bug known as "Heartbleed" continues to cause security headaches across the Internet.
As websites scramble to fix the problem, a lot of people are re-thinking their passwords.
Friday, the Better Business Bureau sent out some advice.
First of all, the BBB says to make your passwords "long and strong." Combine capital and lowercase letters, along with numbers and symbols.
Make sure to have a different password for every account.
And once you've selected those new passwords make sure to write them down. Keep them in a safe, secure place away from your computer.
BBB recommends that businesses immediately check to see if their website(s) use Open SSL or have been vulnerable. One way to check, recommended by tech/media website CNET, is to use a tool developed by a cryptography consultant. If vulnerability exists, businesses should work with their IT department or computer professional to install a more secure SSL on their websites.
For systems administrators:
Systems administrators should follow the advice of US-CERTat www.us-cert.gov, the Computer Emergency Response Team. Although this information comes from the U.S. government, it is applicable to systems in other countries.
