The internet is freaking out about it, but I dunno. I think it's going to be another y2k, or conficker. Remember how big of a deal conficker was supposed to be?

This kind of sums up how I feel about it.

yeah it's, not a huge issue for most people. but changing a few passwords might not be a bad precaution to take. i'm not really concerned about it though; even if people were getting stuck by it left and right: oh no. somebody can get into my free forum accounts that anybody can make. . . oh no. please don't pretend to be me and talk shit on the bukkit forums. because it's going to mean so much coming from someone with four posts. . .

i'm not a very enticing target, and neither are most of us here. though if i had a bunch of porn site accounts which are tied to my bank account: i might be a bit more concerned.
