Hi, This probably needs a CVE too, or does it have one? https://www.alertlogic.com/blog/dont-let-grinch-steal-christmas/ http://www.pcworld.com/article/2860032/this-linux-grinch-could-put-a-hole-in-your-security-stocking.html Although it seems that the user is in the "wheel" group for this to be exploitable and is hard to specify what actions should be safed by another query or which should not. Ciao, Marcus
