SSL certificates renewed

We've renewed SSL certificates for those of our customers who have purchased an SSL certificate through us, due to the recently mentioned OpenSSL security bug.

There is some discussion whether or not the SSL certificates could be compromised, but to be on the safe side, we took the job (and cost) of renewing all these certificates.

If you use self-signed certificates, please renew these as soon as possible, just to be on the safe side. We've notified those of you we can see are using self-signed certificates, or certificates purchased through other companies.

OpenSSL and other security upgrades

Today we've upgraded openssl and related packages on all servers, due to severe exploits being found in these packages.

Due to the severity of the bug we've upgraded all servers without asking first, so if you notice anything wrong on your server, please let us know and we'll get it fixed ASAP.

[Later..] Due to this also affecting users with SSH keys, we're wiping all authorized_keys files. Please get in touch with us to get access to your account again, if you only use key-based authentication.

[Later..] Getting warning messages (unknown fingerprint) when trying to log in via SSH is perfectly normal, as we're using new keys for the SSH service as well.
