comment How do we instruct our employees to protect themselves from Heartbleed?
@MadHatter That question appears to have been understood as being from the admin's point of view: its answers are all about how to fix your server, not about what to tell your users.

@Elipticalview What does that mean, in the context of this question? What is the best we can do? What are the "little steps?"

comment How to better block phishing spam due to heartbleed?
@psusi Heartbleed makes a nasty kind of phish possible: After locating a web site which still has the vulneratbility, the phisher send a "legitimate" email which links to the correct site. This is done in order to increase traffic to the site. The attacker then uses the heartbleed exploit to mine passwords and what-not. The phish isn't the main attack, but it's a way to make the main attack more fruitful.

@David, Thank you. After doing some reading, I think I understand the reason for your recommendation. We'll leave the box set for UMA.
