Interesting. According to that last post, Paypal is saying they are secure, yet when check paypal.com with Lastpass' heartbleed detector (https://lastpass.com/heartbleed/) they say paypal.com is NOT safe.
The Lastpass website makes a general estimation of whether a site is either: not vulnerable, or *possibly* vulnerable. Lastpass would not be able to realibly ascertain which SSL provider a website uses, and even then, which version was used. Lastpass looks for evidence of the http server, Apache for example, and estimates that there is a possibility because a vulernable version of OpenSSL *could* have been installed with Apache.
A real-life anaology would be a website checking a VIN number on a car for sale, and saying it may be totally damaged by flood water, just because the car was in a state where a flood occured in the past.
That being said, Lastpass was a great resource for people whom wanted to change their passwords, and needed a place to start... possible vulnerable site first.
As already said in a previous post, PayPal announced that were not affected by heartbleed. https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/PayPal-Forward/OpenSSL-Heartbleed-Bug-PayPal-Account-Holders-are...
