Shame in you America/NSA that's why smart hackers and security experts should not work for you at all because you don't know better, you just used us like you have from centuries.

The whole point of the Heartbleed bug was to exploit a bug in OpenSSL, so this would affect all servers that used that protocol. If you set complex passwords to start off with then your login details should be OK. By advising users to change the passwords takes away some of the legal responsibility in the interim. Although I can't believe this has been known for nearly two years and nobody cared enough to patch it.

I'm sorry but declining to comment in this case just shows me that they are guilty as charged.

Heartbeat code has been added in version 1.0.1 released 14 Mar 2012. Taking into account that only two years total passed since then and that some time was required to update to that version, it seems somewhat unlikely that they could exploit it "for at least two years".

...even if they knew about the vulnerability from the beginning, which I don't believe a well.

Are they trying to target an os not immune to malware or heartbleed forcing people off of it?
