    Saw it, waiting for my son to tell me if I should care. It sounds like I should and it also sounds like we should wait to change passwords until the sites they are used on fix their systems.

    Russian hackers probably won't come for your writing forums account.

    Do you not bank and use credit cards online? Because I do.

    Hooray, my credit union is not affected. I'm checking on Amazon, EBay and Paypal.

    Paypal is OK.

    EBay and Amazon may have issues.

    Yahoo is now fixed. Gmail is safe. Comcast isn't yet.

    My vaccine distributor sites are all OK, this forum isn't. o_O

    Amazon isn't.

    Keep in mind, 'not safe' really means unknown.

    Thanxs for the list, @GingerCoffee

    I'm very afraid for Paypal, but it's ok. And Steam too (I can play my games \o/).

    The brazilian websites like Paypal that I use to sell my goodies are ok too :D

    Later I will check the others that I use.
