I have openssl version 1.0.1e on my Debian distro. I've done `apt-get install openssl libssl1.0.0` and 1.0.1.e appears to be the latest openssl version for Debian and is vulnerable. As I understand it, 1.0.1.g fixes the Heartbleed bug. Do we know when that package will be available for Debian?

Just update your server.  Debian released patches yesterday.

You can test it here
http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

You could check for the heartbeat variable to see if you're vulnerable.  The patches just compile without the heartbeat.
egrep dtls1_process_heartbeat libssl.so.1.0.0

Thanks! That is good info. I upgraded my openssl package, but it still had version 1.0.1e, so I thought it was vulnerable. However, your link says that 1.0.1e-2+deb7u5 is fixed. I have 1.0.1e+deb7u6, so I guess I'm OK. I did, however, already download and install the 1.0.1g sources from https://www.openssl.org/source on one of my Debian systems already.
