Re: Don't panic, "No exploit code has been released."

Given this is a forum for computing professionals you might want to return to your comics and let the grown ups deal with reality.

I'll let the grown ups like you get on with their sanctimony and patronising.

The reality is that I can't do anything about this or any of the multitude of other security vulnerabilities that exist on my computer equipment and in my life in general.

So I'm ****ed if I'm going to waste time and energy worrying about if I'm going to die in a car accident on my way home or this ridiculous hand-wringing over whether my computer my run a bit slower when I do certain things. So it's going to cost? We know, what are you going to do about it then? Bitch on a forum? That'll make it cheaper.

There's the reality.


36 years professional in computing, done quite well thanks.
