    Yes and I wonder if those can even be "patched".

    I mean it's like what can you do as an individual? Update to the latest version, educate yourself and hope for the best, it's very unlikely you'll be targetted anyway :D

    Yes for targatted attacks that's true. But this alerts can be sent to many (non-targatted) users and could cause panic or something similar. Educating users might help, but it would be better if problem could be resolved at it's source.
