List of effected websites #Heartbleed
We are sure you have already heard of the internet nightmare called “Heartbleed”, a bug that is effecting a lot of websites. It is strongly recommended to change the password of the sites that are listed as “vulnerable”. You can find this list here:
Unfortunately remembering hundreds of passwords isn’t easy and many of us use the same password for different platforms, even if that is not recommended. We therefore advise to change your passwords not just for the sites listed but also for any other account you may have across the web. We also would like to give you some tips how to generate a password that is secure and easier to remember.
Before we generate our passwords you should sort your accounts into groups like Email, Bank, Social Media for example or go with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or also possible Business and Private.
The next step is to come up with a sentence you can remember. Like “My zip code as a child was 555″
Based on this sentence we generate now our basic password by using the first letters combined with the number. Our basic password looks like this “Mzcaacw555″ and now, to have slightly different passwords for different accounts, we add the group to it. Here some examples:
Facebook = “Mzcaacw555-FB”
Twitter = “Mzcaacw555-TW”
Email = “Mzcaacw555-EM”
To make it even more secure we can also group some of our accounts in categories and subcategories. In our example we used Business and Private as the one category and than by service provider as a second category:
Facebook = “Mzcaacw555-FB”
Twitter = “Mzcaacw555-TW”
Email (private) = “Mzcaacw555-EM_P”
Email (business) = “Mzcaacw555-EM_B”
- To keep your password safe we also recommend:
- Change your password frequently.
- Use different basic passwords for different groups.
- If you use a public computer always use the “Logout” button when you are done.
- If you speak another language, try to come up with a sentence in a different language instead of your mother tongue.
Some provider offer an Authenticator to protect your account. Blizzard and Google have for example an app you can download to your smart phone. The Authenticator generates a random number, which you need to enter when accessing your account.

The application is a fun way to learn about the human anatomy and a great asset for future nurses, doctor or anybody who like to learn more about the human body. Let us list some of the elements they want to include in this app from their Kickstarter Page:
Anatomy games. All our games are interactive with a combination of excellent images, correct terminology, and stats. You will be able to review, self test and track your improvements.
Reward and Tracking System. Earn badges for accuracy, speed and for improvement. The tracking system will monitor your improvements and challenges. If you are having trouble with one muscle, it will appear more often in the game.
Flashcards. We have the platform for the flashcard component. Each flash card will have the muscle image. You will be able to customize what you need to study. The origin, insertion, action, nerve and blood supply will be interactive. There are also tabs associated with each flashcard that takes you to a video, a memory aid or a note function. You will be able to build your own study decks.
