You may have heard about the recently-discovered vulnerability in the
version of OpenSSL shipped on Debian and derivatives. Basically, any host
or user SSH keys, as well as SSL certs, generated since September 2006
would have used a fatally-weakened pseudorandom number generation
algorithm, which makes them much easier to guess than they should be.
