Excellent Heartbleed bug article, it is NOT over yet:

You MUST check not only for patched server, but updated certificate:

 

Place to check for the bug: https://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

Remember, this bug exposed the PRIVATE key, i.e. the ssl certificate of the server, so once someone has that, they can impersonate that server any time. Updating the server software just stops the theft of the PRIVATE key, if someone already has it and the SSL certificate has NOT been changed, then the fundamental security breach STILL EXISTS.
