Re: patch only?
I have a few doubts related to the absolute data proposed. As said by Robert Grahamprobably the number of organizations that doesn't use OpenSSL in very high. 

This statement puzzles me about the quality of the "population" analyzed.
"only 3% of Their public-facing servers not have been fully and properly locked down from the Heartbleed vulnerability"

Project Zero
I wonder if major bugs like this that affect thousands of sites will become rarer in the future, thanks to efforts like Google's Project Zero security team. They've hired on the likes of Geohotz and several other amazing hackers, so it seems like they'll be able to really shore up the digital defenses of a lot of web properties.

Re: patch only?
Thank you for sharing that, Ryan. I'm also curious if any org has a good reason not to patch and reissue the cert.

Re: patch only?
My institution patched for Heartbleed and cycled the certs. Otherwise you won't be able to confidently say that your systems aren't exploited. The vulnerability may have allowed for forged certs to be applied and if you only patched you would not be able to detect the further exploits of the system. I would be interested to hear the validation for institutions that only patched as well. Might provide some perspective we couldn't think of.

patch only?
Any of our readers willing to share whether they've only patched for Heartbleed, but not revoked their digital certs? We'd love to hear your perspective on this.
