The Heartbleed flaw is fixed on a lot of web sites, but not all, according to a report by Arik Hesseldahl on Recode. http://recode.net/2014/04/18/the-heartbleed-bug-is-mostly-fixed-but-not-entirely/http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/04/tor-networks-ranks-of-relay-servers-cut-because-of-heartbleed-bug/

Arik is a Senior Editor for Recode specializing in enterprise computing and he's here to give us an update on what's happening with Heartbleed.

Q: Can you give us a sense of how many major sites have been updated and how many have not?
Q: Do users still need to change passwords even if they’ve already done so since Heartbleed?
Q: You suggested that attackers could be using Heartbleed scanning sites to look for un-patched servers
Q: Another report said Tor, which is a network for using the web anonymously, has many servers that are unpatched and vulnerable. What’s the risk there?
A: In a blog post, Project Tor organizers said a "serious number" of keys need to be reissued to keep the relay network secure.
A: Around 10 to 12 percent of Tor servers appear to be affected.

Have you noticed that tech these days is often described as “creepy”? Google Glass is creepy. Personalization is creepy. Humanoid robots are creepy. http://recode.net/2014/04/18/introducing-a-theory-of-creepy/

.

Omer Tene (TEN-eh), who is the VP of Research and Education at the International Association of Privacy Professionals, wrote a piece for recode with Jules Polonetsky about creepy technology.

Q: What is some technology considered creepy?
Q: You wrote about the Eleven Madison Park restaurant which does research on patrons to customize their dining experience. Is that creepy?
Q: Why is Google Glass considered creepy?
Q: You point out that the Kodak camera was creepy more than 100 years ago. Why?
Q: Your article in the Yale Journal of Law and Technology gives tips to help organizations not be creepy. What sort of advice do you give?
Q: We clearly need to update our etiquette. For example, what’s an acceptable level of Googling someone before you meet them for business?
