ellipitical curves in ECDHE and Dual_EC_DRBG

I have read a couple recent posts that suggest that all elliptical curve use in encryption is bad, and even one blog post suggesting we turn off ECDHE ciphers and only use DHE ciphers! (


It is my understanding that the issue ( )  is with Dual_EC_DRBG which is a PRNG, and not ECDHE key exchange in TLS. Is this a true, or are elliptical curves in ECDHE affected as well?
