It's definitely a hot topic right now.  Almost all the major headlines on Drudgereport.com, for example, are about this and just how big the scope of this is.  I expect a LOT of coverage of this in the coming days, weeks, etc.

Certainly scary. 

Privacy isn't what it was decades ago -- that's for sure.
