I'm not qualified to.. because I know people will ask

It was just reported within the last week so I doubt they knew about it, just saying.

Oh well, it's always fun getting a little excitement:-p

And on a side note, kinda mean for him to say something 99% of the community doesn't quite know, so just a simple "no" is better.

Think about it this way. There are two ways to handle when this situation arises
1) Identify the specific thread or user and say something, effectively calling them out.
2) Use a generalization to get the same point across (aka tact)

Keep in mind people are probably spamming him and @djrbliss to crazy town on these.
Professionally he did communicate that well. It gets the message across without singling anyone out.

So, in summary, it's being said that this can't be exploited by a known security expert.
Let's call it a day on this one unless something changes that.
Thank you for your time.
