Sigh...
This is only true if;
1) It is a local user compiling the hack. Doesn't work over a network. As a Senior Network Admin I never, never give local users the rights to compile on their systems much less a server. Dah!!!

AND

2) If you have compiled a kernel using the 'PERF_EVENTS' option. Rare, very rare.

Just point me to ONE system in the wild that actually has been cracked by this.

You Windows people just can't accept that you have a bad O.S. that you have to blow up such non-events as this.

Get real, potential for cracks is not the same as the 100's of million Windows systems that make up the bot'nets of the internet.
