This article said pretty much nothing. The title seems to imply that you shouldn't be worried about it, the article says be worried but maybe not be worried if you don't have the browser plugin running and it's only running on the desktop. Then it says that the desktop is a possible attack vector too sometimes but maybe not for this particular attack vector. I got exactly NO information out of this article that was relevant to the attack vector.
