On Whonix-Gateway and Whonix-Workstation,
due to the Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL, you are advised to run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

as fast as possible.

Additionally, on Whonix-Gateway restart Tor:

 sudo service tor restart

(or simply reboot).

(You only have to do this once. Otherwise do just regular upgrades.)

Hidden Services:
If you are using hidden services (TorChat, hidden web server, etc.), you should also create a new hidden service domain name, for more information, see:
