I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".

I don't know how "huge" this is.  The encoder with the vulnerability is a low-end encoder bought by folks that were too cheap to buy a Sage, and probably don't check their logs anyway.  I believe that the commission revoked the type acceptance to those units years ago, deeming them illegal to use in a FCC licensed station in the first place.

No worries.   This is the same Moscow that thought their "special operation" in Ukraine would be a 2 week cakewalk.
