I'm an American, does this apply to me
The NSA would only use this technique in the U.S. if they really thought they could go undetected. In the UK they have gone undetected until now ( since 2011, as evidenced by the date of the firmware ), you should assume that the U.S. is doing the same to all Americans and you should use the defenses as detailed herein as a precaution. We can turn off the lights ourselves.

Maybe so, I've used the latest A/V scans. That's all I can do.
The data in the file was well worth the risk IMO. From what I see the biggest threats are form the actual ISP routers and modems. Once the NSA has their hooks into them you're pretty well finished. The doc shows you how to overcome those attacks, both inbound and outbound.
