Did you know if you use openvswitch, and you wanted to try Software Defined Networking right now, that it was this easy?  This literally took me only minutes to set up.

Now that seems like a cool idea.
 
More Heartbleed fixes, this time in the form of a Chrome extension:
Chrome: The Heartbleed bug is among the major security vulnerabilities we have seen in recent times. It's one of those cases where precaution is the order of the day. You could manually check sites or use Chromebleed, an extension that tells you if the site you're on was affected by the bug.

So what do you think?  Time to stop using #SSL  ?  Or, as in #ipv6  where #ipsec  was a crucial part of the protocol?

Heartbleed testing site.  If you've patched openssl and it still says it's vulnerable, you may need to restart your service (apache, lighttpd, nginx, for webservers, for example).
 
Here's a heartbleed test site for extra assurance of satisfaction!
http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

The way to use it is type in the domain and append ":443",
eg
"yahoo.com:443"
(the query is not automatically appending :443 so it has to be typed)

Popular affected sites with the openssl can be listed over here. 
https://github.com/musalbas/heartbleed-masstest/blob/master/top1000.txt

(It may be better to change passwords even for sites that are no vulnerable, up to you)

My curious wonders is if Microsoft/NSA knew about this, but I'm just speculating..(I wouldn't be surprised if one of these criminal organizations in fact did know about it. XD)

Secure yourselves!! :)) lol

Introduction
Sr Unix & Network Sysadmin, avid Linux advocate. Technology and goofiness for the long haul.

I'll post about things I find interesting, art, electronics, cool maker projects, virtualization, open source, business, law, internet protocols and networking, security, cloud computing (specifically IaaS), or just random funny stuff.

I consider myself an alpha geek, but I attempt to keep my posts well-rounded as I appreciate all types of people and their interests.
