It would mean that your post count would start to decrease and that you would get owned by a bunch of 9 year olds.

The security agencies are trying to plug the hole before the bad guys find out about it. So, of course, what does the press do? Why,

PUBLICIZE IT WORLDWIDE ON THE INTERNET

of course.

It took me a few reads to see it was a hackable bug and not a huggable bug. I already wondered how you can find them anyway.
