I read that certain banks in Germany had the heartbleed bug and are in the 
process of fixing it  – which they hopefully completed by now.

So I recommend to ask your bank whether they had this issue *or* change your 
access data to it *just in case*.

Instead of guessing. Guessing or speculation does not help a single bit with 
this bug. This bug is digital. Either some webserver had it or not. And if it 
had it… someone may have exploited it.
