Stirling says that, yes, this is how the heartbleed bug works. This sort of implies that the last changes are the ones most likely to be grabbed by someone exploiting the bug. That implies that, yes, it's best to wait until the patch is applied to change passwords. But, since the bug has been around for two years, it may have been exploited and according to this link, it looks like it has. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/0...-november-2013

"Your Internet security relies on a few volunteers"

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
Last week's Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people.
They're all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job."

Your Internet security relies on a few volunteers - Apr. 18, 2014
