Any concerns with the Heartbleed Bug and FETCH. Please advise.

The Heartbleed bug is an issue that affects servers, rather than client programs like Fetch. So if you use Fetch to connect using "FTP with TLS/SSL" to a server, there is a chance that the server was and/or is vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. In that case I would advise contacting the service provider to find out whether they were affected. If they were vulnerable, I would recommend changing your password with that service provider, once they've corrected the Heartbleed vulnerability.
The Heartbleed bug only affects connections over TLS/SSL, so it does not affect plain FTP or SFTP, just FTP with TLS/SSL (which is sometimes called FTPS).
