Parent article: Fedora 12 lets unprivileged users install packages
It's a hell of a lot f-ing more trivial to do that then using package kit to install a service or application that runs as root and is locally exploitable.
Really? It takes less time to reboot my laptop and crack the HD password (full disk encryption) that it does to install a new package and break it?
Perhaps the disk encryption people should fix that...
