Heartbleed hackers target Mumsnet users

A leading UK site for parents and the Canadian tax authority have both announced they have had data stolen by hackers exploiting the Heartbleed bug.

Mumsnet, which says it has 1.5 million registered members, said that it believed that the cyber thieves may have obtained passwords and personal messages before it patched its site.

The Canada Revenue Agency said that 900 people's social insurance numbers had been stolen.

The BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones said the advice was to change passwords as soon as possible.
