Apache servers, which run the majority of the world wide web, use OpenSSL for secure connections.  OpenSSL uses a Transport Layer Security (TLS) feature referred to as heartbeat. It's come to light that there is a bug in the heartbeat extension, known as heartbleed, which opens it up to attack. It is estimated that 2/3rds of the web is vulnerable.  SSL Labs has developed a test for vulnerability to the heartbleed bug. If there's a site you use that passes credit card data, etc., (banking, shopping, etc) you can scan the site using this utility https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/
