Obviously, you need to restart your core *after upgrading OpenSSL* and *before 
creating a new certificate* first, because otherwise your newly generated 
private key could leak again. And then restart your core a second time after 
replacing the certificate.

Also, you should change the passwords afterwards, because they may have 
leaked, too.
