Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with updates on the following stories:

--Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality won his appeal before the Canadian border security agency. They were trying to stop him saying that he was a potential violator of Canada's hate propaganda law because he was set to speak before an audience in Saskatchewan.

--The parents of Justina Pelletier of Massachusetts filed a writ of habeas corpus seeking to have custody returned to them directly. (See Crosstalk—April 1)

Regarding the main topic, about 2 years ago a programmer in Germany accidentally made an error in the SSL encryption that protects about 60% of the traffic on the Internet. It meant that for some period of time, websites were vulnerable to have hackers come in and obtain sensitive information.

Known as the 'Heartbleed' bug, it raises some interesting questions. For example: Why didn't the government warn the public about this? Is it possible that the NSA exploited this? Is your personal information with the IRS really safe?

Find out the answers to these and other questions along with what you should do to keep your personal information safe.
