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.
