Given that FreeBSD 10 is well out of support, then yes, if these OpenSSL 
problems are important for your use case, then you should upgrade.  It 
might be obvious, but "out of support" means "no more security fixes" -- 
not everyone seems to get that.

You don't necessarily have to upgrade all the way to 14 (which isn't 
even a released version yet) -- there will be fixes for all of the 
security problems publicised in this OpenSSL release, even if that 
doesn't go as far as importing OpenSSL 1.1.1k on all branches.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
