Skype security hole and a 72 Hour Kit

From the National Terror Alert Response Center page:

Fox News reports a flagrant security flaw in the massively popular Skype video chat service may be putting Internet users worldwide at risk.The serious security breach in the Internet video chat program, which boasts over 500 million users around the globe, means that any evil computer nerd could easily hunt down users’ whereabouts, according to a study co-authored by an NYU-Poly professor.

I noted also that on the sidebar there is a link to a 72 Hour Kit, for an emergency.

Do you use skype?

Do you have a plan for you and your family if there is an emergency?

    This is all a bit daft. So, somebody is going to destroy humanity by tracing the whereabouts of every person, and then each person will be waiting, already prepared, with 2 gallons of fresh water? Have I missed something?
