I think this is yet another press release that over hypes the implications of a study.
While there may be some plausability to think this hypotheses is worth testing this study was done on cells which means further studies need to be done before such generalized statements that this will cure such diverse diseases as cancer, ebola, mersa, etc.
Drano will kill cancer cells but that doesn't mean it can be used as a treatment for cancer.
This was discussed in the following thread.
When the media picks this up, it's highly likely we will see headlines that state a cancer, ebola, mersa, insert a disease here, cure has been found.
It turns out that GRP78 is conserved not only in all mammals but all bacteria too, which, together with its role in helping amino acid chains form correctly-functioning proteins, suggests that you interfere with this at your peril. It block viruses and cancers and superbugs but it might kill lots of healthy cells too.
