I think they are talking more along the lines of just the ability to go into your machine/phone/device without your consent or knowledge.

That ability means they could in theory nuke anything on your machine that they deem bad or just don't want. I certainly do not want something like this on my home PC. The idea of anyone reaching into my machine without consent, for ANY reason, is bad and I will never accept it.

It is not what they did this time that is concerning, it is the ability to do it that is concerning.
