Powershell Check-Service

Syntax: Check-service computername

I use this function to check all services on a machines for start state and if they are running.   Get-service does not include startmode so I need to get -wmiobject of each service first.    If the state is set to auto and the service is not running the script will prompt to start the service.   I put this in my $profile so if is already ready to go.    Enjoy

HeartBleed: List of services that were compromised and patched

So check this list, if you use a service and they have patched change your password. If they have not patched yet check back each day and change when they have. For the non-technical people that read my stuff it is simply boiled down to this. If you use these sites and they were vulnerable your password has been compromised, change it when they patch. If you have any questions let me know.
