HEARTBLEED: Fixes Could Temporarily Slow Internet Down

If your internet speed gets slower in the next few weeks, blame it on the Heartbleed bug.

Experts now think that fixing the damage caused by the virus will be a lot more complicated than just changing our passwords. They've now figured out that hackers are able to create fake websites that mimic legitimate ones and can fool security certificates into thinking those fake sites are authentic.

The solution seems to be for all the infected sites on the internet -- which are now thought to number about half a million -- to revoke their current security certificates and issue new ones. And that process could significantly slow web browsers down for a while, as thousands of companies scramble to add new security fixes.

Tom & Becky

Tom is a proud Syracuse University graduate and a huge Orange Football and Basketball fan. He and his wife Laurie call Syracuse home and spend time in Ft. Myers Florida. Tom loves his family and spends as much time as possible with the kids. Tom loves to play guitar at open mics and other venues and is passionate about golf. Watch for him in his black Corvette Stingray convertible this summer. His favorite guitar players are Clapton and Keith Urban.............Becky is a real fan of country music. Her Mom was also a broadcaster so she grew up in the music business. It is fun to see how country music evolves with the new artists that are available to us. There is nothing better than watching a star grow to a major headlining act in the big stadiums. Becky is a resident of Syracuse, after moving in from the country. She loves the country but doesn't miss the commute. She lives in a very quaint home, which is a lot like a gingerbread house. Becky is a cancer survivor and continues to carry on a mission to promote the fight against this deadly disease. Having cancer made life so much more valuable to her. She is very active in many charity efforts. Becky loves spending time with her family more than anything but also enjoys her new garden and pond that came with the house. She also likes to draw and swim...swim...swim... "I am crazy for that. I get lost in the zone."
