In Heartbleed's wake, Comodo cranks out fresh SSL certificates

Quote:
Tens of thousands of new digital certificates have been issued by Comodo in the wake of the “Heartbleed” security flaw, which has put Internet users’ data at risk.

One of New Jersey-based Comodo’s main business lines is issuing the digital certificates that encrypt traffic between users and a Web service, a critical shield that protects users from spying by third parties.

Over the last day or so, Comodo has seen a huge uptick in requests for new digital certificates from website operators, said Robin Alden, Comodo’s chief technology officer.

“The last couple of days, we’ve seen replacement rates running at somewhere between 10 to 12 times the normal rate than were replacing a week ago,” Alden said. “That’s obviously fallout from this.”

Obvious, but the proper way to secure the SSL site; generate new private/public keys and use it for the new SSL cert...

In addition to applying the OpenSSL patch.
