US-Cert alert! Thanks to a massive bug, VPN now stands for 'Vigorously Pwned Nodes'

This is not something new. Many VPNs use the logic that this is okay because if someone already has access to your file system you're screwed anyway. I have always disagreed because certain malware may only have one function to steal passwords. Especially when used by script kiddies. This would protect against such attacks.
