    "heartbleed" - virus

    I just heard about this "heartbleed" thing that is supposedly a big deal. and affects sites like this one where you have to "log in". (I already logged in today, and yesterday and..) so I figure I just ask the mods here if ya'll have done the "fix" for this yet?

    It's legit but has no effect on this site as it doesn't use ssl (i.e. https://)

    I just got something from McAfee today about it. They said it wasn't on them, so contact the the one's with the servers.
