    So BASH had a vulnerability that could affect the entire Internet, BIND has a vulnerability that could affect the entire Internet...what other critical component of the inner workings of the Internet should we expect to be exploited next? CRON?

    Or maybe someone will find a super bug embedded in TCP/IP itself that will plunge the world into the dark ages. Who knows? We live in dangerous times.
