Implications Of The Recent RSA Vulnerability

With the recent news of researchers being able to crack 1024-bit RSA
keys using power fluctuations, I was wondering if it would be a good
idea to switch the RSA keys I have to some other algorithm. Both my
signing and encryption keys are 4096-bit keys. Am I vulnerable to this
security hole?

Is it possible to generate a new keypair and retain/transfer the old
signatures from my email buddies?
