My latest Practical Mac column for the Seattle Times looks at what you can do following the Heartbleed vulnerability, with a focus on features in the new version of 1Password: Heartbleed fallout: It’s time to change most passwords.
In it I mention Watchtower, a Web site that the developer, AgileBits, created to check if sites are patched to fix the problem or not.
Just a few days after the article appeared, AgileBits has updated 1Password for Mac to incorporate Watchtower into the app itself. After you enable the feature in the application’s settings, a Watchtower item appears under the Security Audit category.
It doesn’t help to change all your passwords for sites that haven’t implemented the fix, so having some pointers like this definitely helps.
