Does anyone know if Amazon has been affected by this security issue? Has it been corrected? Do I need to change my password now?

What could be more unhelpful than "don't remember source, but it appeared reliable"?

amazon was never affected according to CNET (I do think this is a reliable source!)

I believe I heard that on TV

Hate to tell you, but some 'reliable' sites report that Amazon was affected by the bug and some say that Amazon was not affected by the bug. But the ones that say they were; also report that Amazon has patched the bug and passwords should now be changed. Think I will be erring on the safe side.

No.

Follow the following link, hopefully amazon won't delete it. If they do, a list of affected (and non-affected) companies are listed on mashable dot com.

"mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/"

Bottom line, Amazon (the store) wasn't affected, but the Amazon Web Services was...

Your remark doesn't address the hacker program either.

Amazon is A-OK

This whole sweeping heartbleed under the rug thing is start to really piss me off. EVERY WEBSITE THAT USED OPENSSL HAS BEEN AFFECTED FOR TWO YEARS! Anyone who says otherwise or says, OUR SERVERS WERE NOT AFFECTED are lying, plain and simple. Just because you patched on 0-day does not mean you weren't vulnerable, also google and cloudflare as well just because you got the info before hand doesn't mean you weren't vulnerable, you were vulnerable for two years. This is sick and disgusting and everyone should be very worried about the future of the internet.

You don't [can't] know if anyone copied the numbers - or copied anything else.

I copied the numbers. I win.

Re Heartbleed:
This article/chart on BGR (April 15) lists major sites that were affected, and includes "Amazon Web Services" on its list needing new safer passwords immediately. There's also a link for a browser fix to warn of unsafe sites.

Email, financial and major shopping sites are listed.
