Heartbleed Bug in OpenSSL

Yikes!  Kind of scary.  Good thing the update is already available.  I highly recommend patching your OpenSSL if you’re running it.

For those unwilling to read the article, the long and short of it is that with vulnerable OpenSSL, a lot of traffic on the web that is ‘encrypted’ is capable of being decrypted.

Those usernames, passwords, credit card details, your emails, all of it.

So I hope all you admins out there are keeping an eye open.

I’ll be updating today.
