Critical OPENSSL bug found!

In case you haven't heard, a serious bug has just been discovered in the OPENSSL implementation. Most patches should already be rolling out for your system.

For Linux users, try:

sudo apt upgrade openssl -y
openssl version -a
On Windows, just navigate to Start Menu -> Settings -> Update and Security -> Check for Updates.

Unfortunately, there may be other applications which have their own "baked in" copies of OPENSSL that will obviously need to be patched as well. (Git?)

*** EDIT ***

On second thought, a full upgrade check in Linux would probably be best:

sudo apt upgrade -y
openssl version -a
