"It's not worth digging into. Not unless you're focused on a valuable target at least. Which most of us just aren't."
So you dont have any internet banking on your machine. Good. You also dont have any mortgage details or scans of ID documents. You also are not going to be editing a selfie with your bank card details visible at any time, I take it you are careful enough to not leave such cards lying on a surface where they may be photographed by accident.
I also assume you have no kids that may be using a computer with a built in webcam?
Everyone is a valuable target for someone. Just because you dont think of attacking someones PC for their data or CPU cycles dont think that someone you dont know and will never meet thinks the same as you. Of all the billions of humans out there someone will want your data or your PC, for money or whatnot. Sure they will prefer the easy targets. Dont be an easy target.
Thanks to meltdown, unpatched you are basically running naked across the internet showing off all your SSL secret keys. Once someone catches a glimpse of your nude SSL secrets they can impersonate those sites. Once you think you are talking to facebook and not them I'm sure they will have plenty of nice little downloadable packages that they can give you.
