Excellent write up. My question is how easy is this to exploit? Is this going to be easy for hacker groups to take advantage of this or is this really going to require people with advanced skills to exploit (something a very small minority would be able to do)?

Exploiting this from scratch seems quite complicated. Exploiting it via some abstraction made available on the web seems like it could be pretty straightforward, unfortunately.
