Under a normal installation this tool runs with an effective user id 0 so it is possible to exploit this and get more privileges or execute arbitrary code with root privileges. Fixed upstream changeset: http://swapoff.org/changeset/563 Steve, could you assign a CVE id to this? Kind regards Nico -- Nico Golde - http://www.ngolde.de - nion@...ber.ccc.de - GPG: 0x73647CFF For security reasons, all text in this mail is double-rot13 encrypted.
