Have not come across any info to say it has, but as all things internet, keeps changing passwords regular, don't use same password for different sites, just treat forums as you would your online banking security.

OpenSSL is an open source project that takes donations and sells support contracts, pretty much the standard commercial model for open source software. There are quite a number of contributors I believe, so it's not surprising that it only needs a single full-time member of staff. A great deal of the web is powered by similar components, so it's not really unusual.
