    Hi all,

    On my Dedicated Server I want to update my SSL library for prevention of the "HeartBleed" bug but I have no idea how to do it.

    I have a self managed server from my host, I have asked them how to do the update, they responded with:

    1. info on the Test your server for Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160)
    2. Test for the vulnerability here: Test your server for Heartbleed (CVE-2014-0160)

    3. update openssl like so:
    yum update openssl* or apt-get upgrade openssl*

    4. Restart httpd and restart.

    so as I sit in front of the WHM screen, I have no idea how to proceed, I do understand that its command lines I need to run I do know of Putty a Shell Command program for windows, I think I need to run the command lines by this program, but I am not sure if I should.

    Can someone please explain to a noob how to do this Shell Command update procedure?

    All the best-
    Lloyd
