"I'm more worried for my mom because she doesn't know how to navigate the Internet as much as I do. She puts her information more out there than I would. It (the Heartbleed bug) is kind of creepy, now that I think about it."

"That's scary because if smaller companies' (websites) are being targeted more right now, they're going to go after big companies next. When people are trying to get into stuff that's not theirs, that's so hard to stop it from happening because people have so much access to computers. It feels like they (hackers) can get to everything."

"I'm more concerned about losing money (if banks were targeted). I bank at mostly one bank and I do shop online. I think they'll get this fixed. There's lots of people out there that are more technical, they'll figure it out."

"My dad has always told me, 'don't trust the Internet.' No matter how much you think it's secure, there's always a back door to everything. Illegal downloading, illegal videos that somehow leak online, no matter we think things are secure and safe online. It's funny we're talking about this because I just did mine (tax return) on paper. I was going to file it online but then I thought it probably wasn't a good idea."

"If they can get all of your information, you aren't as safe as you think you are using websites. You should always be careful what you are putting out there. It's a good reminder that it's possible it can be accessed."
