You mean all the articles that can be found in various news are not well-written, not understandable?

If you use openssl in the version mentioned, you need to install updates immediately, that's all. Otherwise you are vulnerable to various serious attacks via internet.

IIS is not affected: http://blogs.technet.com/b/erezs_iis_blog/archive/2014/04/09/information-about-heartbleed-and-iis.aspx
But Apache + OpenSSL is. If your running redhat you are likely affected if it's the latest instance of open-ssl (1.0.1 thru 1.0.1f) http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/720951
Here is a pretty good list of vendors press releases that specify versions of software that are and are not affected, like cisco etc...
