I do recall installing a tweak and Open SSH was installed as part of it. Any idea what tweak could've installed this? And, I saw on the news that those with OpenSSH installed are vulnerable to attacks and hackers, and that I should change my root password and user password. Should I worry? Or, does the news have no idea and just needs "news" to report on?

Saw this: OpenSSL & OpenSSH question

Did you install Semi-restore?

You definitely need to change the passwords if you are going to keep OpenSSH. Failing to do that is a security risk.
