    OpenSSL, the open-sourced SSL/TSL protocols used by a large amount of websites, suffers from what most are calling a "very serious and very damaging vulnerability" called the "Heartbleed Bug". For any web devs out there currently using OpenSSL 1.01 to 1.01f, it's STRONGLY recommended you update to 1.01g in order to fix this.
