We need proof
Has anyone anywhere been able to show that the private keys can actually be obtained?

Even the proof of concept excercises have not shown that any private keys can be obtained.

Please provide some providence for the claim that private keys have been compromised or even can be obtained.

Re: We need proof
CloudFlare just put up an interesting post looking at this very topic...how it's doable to grab the private key, but not easy. Basically, what Rob Graham of Errata Security said. http://blog.cloudflare.com/answering-the-critical-question-can-you-get-private-ssl-keys-using-heartbleed

Re: We need proof
And they say they have put up a site for others to try and crack, so far no one has found any keys.  I can't seem to find anyone that can show a proof of concept where they have gotten the private keys yet.

Plenty of other data can be grabbed, but without the key to decrrypt it what do you get?

Re: We need proof
CloudFlare has now admitted that two hackers have accomplished the feat:

It is 100% sure that Malsubjects will continue to use the Heartbleed Bug as one of the many tools in their toolbox to continue stealing information from out-of-date systems!

Protect Against Zero-day vulnerabilities
This may seem alarming to some but intelligence agencies are in the business of discovering, purchasing, and otherwise exploiting vulnerabilities. There are countless individuals and organizations that discover and sell zero-day vulnerabilities. Responsible disclosure practices are what allow customers to protect themselves against zero-day vulnerabilities. Many organizations who purchase zero-day vulnerabilities on the open market vet those from whom they purchase zero-day vulnerabilities and require that the researcher who finds the zero-day lives by responsible disclosure rules.

We must assume the worst
This flaw has been in circulation for years (plural).  It could have been exploited by anyone during that time.

It is unbelievable that nobody discovered this flaw until last week, especially since the source code is freely available.  There are many smart bad guys out there.

Everyone who is known to be affected must assume that all encrypted communication using keys stored or accessed via OpenSSL are compromised.

I agree that the repercussions will be felt for years.
