OpenSSL Status

Inasmuch as Heartbleed is forcing admins all over the internet to patch their servers, and inasmuch as it's considered wise to change one's passwords after said patching, I'm wondering if PM:
  1. was ever vulnerable to the OpenSSL issue known as Heartbleed, and
  2. if we're all patched, so I can reset my password.

Thanks muchly,

    If the urls you use at any given site do not start with https, then that site is not vulnerable to Heartbleed. (None of PMs urls do!)

    Of course, it also means that that site is probably vulnerable to pretty much every other exploit going.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
