Windows 7: Question About OpenVPN

Question About OpenVPN

I wanted to ask a question about OpenVPN, which I'm actually not familiar with and don't ever remember updating. I use Secunia PSI and yesterday it showed that OpenVPN needs updated. I use Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and I'm pretty sure that I have never seen OpenVPN on my system. I've been using Secunia for a long time and I don't ever remember an OpenVPN update. Can anyone tell me if this program is OK to use and if I should update it? I did a Google search and read about how the Heartbleed virus can gain access to OpenVPN. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Its updating OpenVPN due to the virus you mentioned. As long as its coming from Secunia, its safe.
