We've done a couple of stories resulting from the release of the APEG paper a couple of weeks ago, and this story is by no means an attempt to downplay the significance of the threat or suggest that you not employ the countermeasures discussed in previous stories.  That said, when I first heard about it, my thought was, that sounds like an interesting result, but the hype is over the top.  Yes, it is a significant result, but "the sky is not falling."  I happened across a post on Halvar Flake's blog that explains it better than I could, so take a look for yourself.
