Smart Talk Thursday, April 17, 2014:
Is the personal information like passwords, user name or credit cards on your computer safe from the Heartbleed bug?
Depending on the websites you view, they very well could be in jeopardy.
Earlier this month, Google and other engineers discovered the bug in the code running on the servers of millions of websites. It leaves open a hole that could allow hackers to gain access to encrypted information.
In various ways, Heartbleed has been called one of the greatest threats to internet security since it began.
On Thursday's Smart Talk, we'll answer questions to help you keep your information safe. Joining us will be Chuck Davis, who teaches Ethical Hacking and Computer Forensics classes for Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. Chuck is a Senior Security Architect at a Fortune 500 Company and previously worked as a Security Operations Manager for IBM.

Milton Hershey Certified for Careers
Also, at a time when many high school graduates require remedial classes if they go on to college and may not have practical real world work experience, the Milton Hershey School is offering certificates in 11 different career categories, including journalism, business, financial management and accounting, health sciences, and law, public safety, and security.
All members of the 2013 Milton Hershey class of 2013 received at least one certificate that may give them an advantage over the students they're competing with for jobs.
MHS teachers David Curry and Linda Rudy Davis appear on Thursday's program to explain.
