And what about the millions of users unknowingly infected with
"something else" ??

These people need help, at least the "Ghost Click" victims will have a
clue after July 9, unless we opt to extend our head-in-the-sand period.

(We have enough trouble isolating/remediating issues among our
relatively small user base, I'd hate to be facing a major ISP size
support/remediation effort...)

Does anyone have a plan?
