The Heartbleed bug is said to be one of the biggest security flaws of recent times. With the amount of sites we have accounts on, it’s hard to know which passwords we need to change. Last week, a chart came out where you could manually check, but we all know this can be time-consuming, humans are inherently lazy after all.

A new chrome extension recently came out that automate this process. Chromebleed uses Filippo Valsorda’s little tool to test whether a page was hit by the Heartbleed and hasn’t made a patch yet.
