I'm not a server admin so can only wait on hearing from one that I use when/if I should change a password. My bank told me that they were not affected and I did not need to do anything.

Selective password changes here too, made much easier by having unique passwords per site already, and increased the password length on a few of them too. Those that use OpenSSL and have data I care about got reset, the rest I just let be for now but will change them if anything unusual happens.

Ditto. I went through the list on Mashable ( ) and changed what needed changing. I've not yet checked other sites for which I have logins that were not in Mashable's list, though I could/should be doing so at either LastPass ( ) or 1Password ( ). This is mainly because I'm super lazy, but also because, like you, I've got a unique password for each site. I feel less urgently inclined to change those passwords on sites that are largely unimportant to me. That's possibly the equivalent of "Put my fingers in my ears and chanted La-La-La-La" and, if so, I'll just have my own laziness to blame.

Btw, if anyone's got a good list of sites whose passwords need changing, a la Mashable's but more complete/updated, I'd be much obliged if you posted the link.
