But he didn't do it on the first day!
He hacked the system on the second day when he could direct someone to browse to an exploited website. Not at all the same as just hacking in.
On the second and third day lots of other systems were hacked including IE8.
But look around, google results. No one hacked the Linux system......

Ok, so let me see if I understand this. If I just download this guy's patch and run it my laptop battery will be screwed up.

How ever will I protect myself from this one?...

2 really.

One, no one hacked anything on the first day when the target systems were just sitting there as apposed to being directed to a infected site. Kind of like I could win the USPSA Nationals if I can direct how the other shooters run the stages.

Two, the Linux system never got hacked. It's secure. OS X is based on BSD Unix which is way more secure than Linux and yet it was hacked so Apple did something stupid. Again, I could win the USPSA Nationals if evrybody else forgot to bring ammo.
