bitcoin-qt produces on many systems an unnecessary alert:

"URGENT: Upgrade required: see https://www.bitcoin.org/heartbleed"

Especially the stable channel is affected:


This is a bit frightening for normal users. I think the best would be to
turn off this message (if possible). It produces too many false
positives and motivates people to maybe harmful workarounds.
