The heartbleed bug isn't exactly easy to understand (from a technical perspective) but in layman's terms it was a flaw in OpenSSL (which is used widely) that enabled attackers to gain access to 64kB of memory with each 'heartbeat' which allowed theft of servers' private keys and users' session cookies and passwords. Hence the suggestion to change your password - as it may be compromised.

It is easy to explain the heartbleed bug:

You ask server for a varibale, the variable uses a 6-character-long string, but you request e.g. 600 characters instead and get much more than you should.

Believe me I know what is Heartbleed bug and you explained to the simpler level but the problem this explanation won't work if the person don't know what is a variable how the client server model works etc..! so if someone asks me what is heartbleed bug..! I just tell them Its a vulnerability found in Open SSL then i explain them what is Open SSL then i explain them what is server and what is encryption ..! and when i look at there faces in the end of explanation I just tell them " Just change Your Passwords "

It's considered a big treat because 2/3 of the websites on the internet use the software.

Pretty much this and basically it allows people to send an inquiry question then have the server tell them the dirty little secrets as its reply

Not only users need to change their passwords but websites also need to fix the bug . And this bug is constantly being exploited as you can see the security news .

It's overrated. Journalists got jiggly because they actually got something to write about but it's far less severe than they make it sound. The vast majority of servers were already patched when the news came out. Don't sweat it.

Metasploit module for heartbleed is available already making its exploitation easy.

Soon, a liverleakbleed bug will be found. Who knows how many more of these things are still in the wild.
