Most people have probably heard about this already, but if not, *patch 
your OpenSSL now!* and restart your daemons.



For some reason you (sometimes) have to reload that page a few times 
before it actually loads.

This is the worst bug I've seen in like 10 years, insofar as you may have 
been compromised already, but you don't (can't!) know it and they may be 
sitting there with your keys, waiting to actually make use of them at a 
later date.

>From how I read it, the only way to be safe & sure is to make a new CSR 
and buy a new SSL cert?  Or are the cert vendors going to offer a "redo" 
for free?
