CVE-2014-0235 GHOST: reboot or restart services

A remotely exploitable, 14 year old bug in glibc has reared its ugly head: CVE-2014-0235

Security updates have been pushed out automatically, courtesy of Debian to TurnKey 13 installations. TurnKey 12 installations that have enabled Squeeze LTS support have also received an update.

The catch is that running services need to be restarted for the security update to take effect.
