Not sure if you guys saw it yet, but apparently a security flaw makes it easy for eval hackerz to compromise your system. Ubuntu and Debian users are at risk here *_*

Note: 2^128 is about 3.4 with 38 0s after it.

"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell
