I wonder just how many Home Users and SMEs will have the requisite 
background to effectively absorb, or even care to read, these advisories 
no matter how plain the English is.
With e-security threats originating globally, how is this going to be of 
any more benefit than the alerts already popped up by 
Nortons/F-Secure/pick-your-favourite.
