For a public wifi user, how do those 150k downloads actually affect the probability that someone else on the network is using a session-hijacking tool? Given that it was already high enough that people should have already been taking preventative measures, any increase you can attribute to this would still fail to justify the witch-burning you're looking for.

There is zero difference between what someone using public wifi should be doing today and what they should have been doing last week. Now at least more people are aware of the problem.
