If you think this affects anyone who’s a gamer you’re out of your mind. If you disable HT out of fear of this you’re probably not very bright anyway.

I don't think the vulnerabilities is a big deal for regular home users. You have to be on some shady website to get caught. Even if you do what are the odds you'll be doing banking or something important?:bleh:

I mean how many of us here actually go to poorly maintained web forums with outdated versions of vBulletin that could be compromised and have malicious content injected? I’m sure hardly any of us :bleh:

Sounds like they were trying to bury the report as well for a time.
