Credibility and the Civil Cyber War
The US Government has lost its credibility.  What reason is there to trust them?  That said, what reason was there ever to trust them.  Patriotism in this country demands distrust of those that govern.

There is a World Cyber War going on.  It is many faceted.  It includes what is rapidly becoming a Civil Cyber War against governments that have been exposed for snooping on their own citizens.  It will be a long time if ever before the private sector will truly trust a partnership with government in regards to technology and security.  Ultimately, I think that is fine as a check and ballance.

Don't expect the NSA to help or even come clean
It wasn't the NSA's responsibility to find the HeartBleed bug, and if they did find it, I wouldn't believe their statements that they didn't use it. For them to say otherwise would tip off various parties that their servers are no longer safe to use, while the NSA would prefer they go on using them as before.vvvvv

What's new?
We cannot be surprised. NSA, as any other intelligence has used, and will use in the future exploits to gather sensitive information and foreign government secrets.

What we are seeing is just the tip of the iceberg ... we are in the middle of a cyber war, but people ignore it.
