    Patched, and it's minor. I'm sure there are "experts" out there who will claim it's the end of the world, but those people are douchebags.

    you would have to be on drugs to believe the technology to destroy and/or steal all bitcoin is more than five years away. Even if I'm wrong by a couple years, I'm not wrong.
