There will probably be a wave of two major camps -- those who say "oh this is nothing! Look at what happens to closed-source leakages from banks, etc, ad nauseum!!1"; there will also be a wave of people who say "this is a major break and someone should be shot..." While I understand both camps' thoughts and opinions, I have a single comment: is there really an expectation (whether FOSS or Closed Source) that it should be secure?

Granted, that person/company is probably relying on the money from ads or what have you so he hopes that things are secure. Really, though, if you don't think the service is secure, go to another one or start your own!

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
