[Dailydave] Fun with things not said

First a Minor Interlude:
Why doesn't Google buy PGP then and use it as a way to get Google
Desktop on more people's computers. Bundle it with an easy to use
encryption plugin for Gmail and you have a winner!
Lots of the recent Linux advisories are wrong (Ubuntu is quoted here)
For reference, these are the details of the original USN:
A race condition has been discovered in the file permission handling
of the /proc file system. A local attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with full root privileges.
I'm not sure if the distributions need to go hire a kernel guy or
what, but that's not the correct explanation for the bug. We had Bas
Alberts look at it, and his exploit has no such race condition.
