Do you have info to share with HuffPost reporters? Here’s how.
This was a week of reshuffling and resetting. On Friday, President Obama announced the resignation of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Yes, the Obamacare signup system was initially botched, but Sebelius also presided over a historic expansion of medical coverage, with the number of uninsured Americans having dropped to 2008 levels. On Thursday, David Letterman further shook up late night TV by announcing his replacement would be Stephen Colbert. As brilliant as he's been as 'Stephen Colbert,' it'll be exciting to see the full Colbert in action. Meanwhile, the Heartbleed computer bug reminded us how vulnerable we are to technology. As we take the time to strengthen our computer security by resetting passwords, we should also take the opportunity to fortify our inner strength and well-being by reminding ourselves to regularly 'consciously uncouple' from our ever-present devices.
First, don't panic. This is a serious problem but you need to put it into perspective. While there is clearly a vulnerability, there are so far no reports of the flaw being exploited. And even though this flaw has been around for the past two years, almost all the major sites have fixed it -- in some cases, in the last few days.
