Oops. By "contained an exploit" I meant that an exploit was limited or curtailed, not that the chroot use itself was related to an exploit.
(Though, like any interface, chroot could feasibly be part of an attack vector. As described in this thread, use of chroot is questionable when an administrator has to duplicate sensitive files for a chroot'd environment.)
