Watch out for OpenSSL bug (Heartbleed)

All system administrators should take note of a bug recently revealed in OpenSSL. OpenSSL is a very popular software library used for communication encryption and many Linux machines running dLibra may be voulnerable. The bug allows the attacker to read a part of the server’s memory, which may result in stealing encryption keys, user passwords and other important data. It is recommended to update OpenSSL to version 1.0.1g. It should be also considered to change encryption certificates and system passwords to make sure this data cannot be used if it has been stolen earlier (the bug exists for two years, but has been published a few days ago).
