Here's a quoted message from OpenWrt-Devel:

Quote
Heartbleed - libopenssl AA binary feed update

we updated the AA release. the files libopenssl_1.0.1e-1_*.ipk have
been replaced with libopenssl_1.0.1g-1_*.ipk and the Packages index
was updated. If you use openssl on your unit you need to run :

# opkg update
# opkg upgrade libopenssl

In order to ensure that all affected services are using the updated
OpenSSL library it is recommended to reboot the device after applying
the upgrade.

To find out more about the bug go to - http://heartbleed.com/

Note that default OpenWrt installations are not vulnerable to the
particular bug, neither the builtin SSH server nor the optional LuCI
SSL support rely on OpenSSL for cryptography.

The OpenSSL library is not installed within the stock images available
on the download server.

This is not a lightweight bug. Please take it serious and check your unit.

For reference, IIUC, AA refers to the latest version of OpenWRT -- Attitude Adjustment.

Moons later...

Managed to establish a serial connection today -- without solder even :)

Perhaps the next step is updating to something that will lead to a more successful boot.
