Cause I think there are many (I think even 1K users with BTC1 are "many") using bitcoin core 0.9.1 that doesn't read (this forum/reddit daily/are busy right now ...) or understand what is going on.
And if they are unlucky/stupid to have just everything in 1 wallet ...

"I think" and "most" are not good keywords, when it Comes to Security Wink

So, in my opinion it is definitly a reason to use the Alert.

I believe this is a situation where that would be good. I mean, why have the function, just to not use it?
It could save many people from losing their money.

Because it's an indirect exploit, hackers are not going to target individuals they will attack sites/servers etc (Mostly Linux) and alert feature is useless unless they are using alert-notify function and windows IIS is not vulnerable

Correct me If i am wrong.

They will probably mainly attack servers, however, there could be attacks against private persons as well.
I assumed that there would come up as a pop up window? I only know about alerts from Litecoin-QT.

doge-qt used the alert when the blockchain forked 1 month ago, the alert said "Upgrade immediately to version 1.6".
Very nice feature (if used).

Cryptography is one of the few things you can truly trust.
