comment How to explain Heartbleed without technical terms?
It's almost humerus how Lastpass's heart bleed checker tool detects lastpass as possibly compromised. Does that mean anyone who used lastpass should change all passwords?

"This would cause the web browser to leak up to 64KB of information to the webserver." what information could this be? For example would it be cached information about websites? Could it be data stored by add-ons, for example pass word managers like lastpass?

comment Encrypting files on Google Drive
Good discussion. If you were to use one of those mentioned services such as Boxcrypt then your unencrypted files will be passing right through there servers. I see no reason to trust Boxcrypt anymore than Google?

"What are the odds of someone using the same password but different usernames?" what do you mean? If it's a common password or a week one there is a good chance another person would use this password. On the other hand there are people who do use the same passwords for everything.
