Reading the article it seems it only affects machines running ICS,so if you connect thru a router and don't use ICS it won't affect you.It also seems that the attack would have to be launched from a machine on your own network anyway.That being the case, and knowing nothing about networking and very little about computers, a question springs to mind......if someone already had that sort of access to a machine on your LAN would they need to use this exploit anyway?
You have hit the nail on the head. It is yet more paranoid rubbish trotted out on a slow news day. You would already have to be in the network to do this and then why would you need to. Surely this is not an excerpt from an article that great defender of the free world, aka, Steve Gibson?
