I'd be utterly shocked if any regular WebmasterWorld member would be affected.
Now an estimated 300,000 [high side] internationally, are alleged to be affected. FBI suspect figures.
In Australia we are solemnly informed that includes 6,000 Australians. What % of internet users world-wide does 300,000 comprise?
My view is that likely they comprise the bottom end of users who will click on anything, say yes to anything and don't even take primitive security measures. They are beyond help.
Some people can't ever be protected from themselves. At this very minute? None are aware of measures freely available to circumvent the problem.
Beyond help. If this story is true, 6,000 people will tomorrow be hammering Australian ISP's for their own stupidity.
