Admittedly, this is very techie to the average person but this is actually a big deal.  This vulnerability allows hackers in to your machines and there is almost NOTHING you can do to detect it or stop it.  This is a backdoor that you can’t close.

Not only that, this is the perfect example of why back-doors to break encryption is a bad idea.
