Thread: Propaganda

    Check out this article...

    Article is titled "Serious Linux Flaw", yet I don't see it as serious. The exploiter has to have a user account on the machine to exploit it, it is not capable of being remotely triggered... In a business environment, it might be harmful, but that's assuming you have someone technically saavy enough to take advantage of it, and let's be real, for the most part, that is not the case. Even if that were true, wouldn't it only be of use to screw your own company if you were trying to extort them?

    I haven't read the article, just what you've wrote, but more then likely now that it's going to be known someone is going to take care of the issue with some type of patch, and then no more serious Linux flaw.

    They act like we don't do anything. Come on, we're not Microsorry.
