If you're using a tool to check for Heartbleed vulnerabilities, be
sure to check the Web interface on your router and/or modem as well.

I'm not sure if router vendors are on top of this, but according to
ssltest.py my Tomato/MLPPP Version 1.25-mp3alpha6 (from
http://fixppp.org ) is not vulnerable, nor my Thomson Speedtouch modem
with firmware

Also, somebody asked me how safe these vulnerability checking tools
are, especially the online and Javascript-based ones. What's to say
they're not merely displaying "all is well", and actually compiling a
list of vulnerable sites for later exploitation?
