you're probably a git user, aren't you?
I think the awareness it created by doing an incorrect disclosure and the frantic reactions that followed, made it possible that many sites were patched, that otherwise were not patched at all, and certificates renewed, that otherwise would stay the same due to laziness of the maintainers.
The legitimate question is of course if that outweighs having the whole world open to this vulnerability for a short amount of time. (On the other hand, they were open anyway).
that depends how good your chess skills are, doesn't it?
nothing that a spy satellite cannot accomplish. It might be that Finland does not have one available and want to check out the immediate border situation with Russia?
