Are verizon.net's email servers vulnerable to the Heartbleed flaw?

   

If they are, what is Vz doing about it?

I ran a scan of the Verizon log on page using Qualys SSL test page. The results were "A-" KUDOS Verizon.

Here is a link if needed:

FYI that's the web mail server , not the email (SMTP/POP) server.  smtp.verizon.net is the outbound email server, and pop.verizon.net is the inbound email server.

I am sure if there were any issues Verizon would have them resolved. You can check many sites via this link: https://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

I would still change my password on a regular basis, and use upper case, lower case, numbers and special symbols.

Also do not save any password if you browser prompts you to.
