OH IS ME! WHAT WILL I DO!!!??? I'M VULNERABLE!! RUNNING OLD 430.xx VERSION!!! OH HACK GODS DON'T HACK MY MACHINE!!!! OH NOOOOOOO!!

But not being a paranoid schizophreniac like some other people.. whatever, I'll update whenever...

In fact, it's not a HUGE problem at all unless your playing or using some shit app/game. The odds of you getting attacked are next to zilch.

Three of the problems are classified as 'serious', the other two vulnerabilities are of 'medium' risk. None of the issues could be triggered remotely though.
