One silver lining

At least the latest firmware is not subject to this particular threat, apparently.

How to upgrade something that is embedded in a person's body is something else though, and given that I already fear upgrading my motherboard firmware*, I shudder to think of me having one of those things inside me that needs upgrading.

* : somehow I never can bring myself to trust those things - I always fear that, after the update, the board just dies and never starts up again
