Sub_title: root still safe?
 

Malware was able to execute bash script on a Linux box remotely via Windows. (Affected Linux machines must have been running as root?)

I thought browsers ran as Spot on Puppy? But not on Seamonkey with Slacko?

Dang, hope they can't remotely erase my boot DVD's Laughing

Also It using a windows exploit to prep an executable script to drop into /tmp/cups for multiple OSes not just linux. It patches a xml sniffer on Windows to grab remote desktop running in Windows logging into a remote machine as the root user.

If you use that method for running puppylinux then STOP!

Otherwise nice FUD attempt. Twisted Evil

Has ZERO to do with seamonkey running as root.

if they manage to do that, they might get through the interwebs, take your ejected DVD and put it in the microwave - make for sparkly fun

Fatdog64 loads the browser with user spot - one disadvantage of this is that your browser could not see files outside the folders owned by spot (obviously, but I always forget 'coz I've grown up using root in Puppy). Embarassed

Hi,

What would happen if you have save files to a frugal install?

would there be a possible recovery?

At the very least, i save on different mount points.

I left the house, DVD was ejected, then I returned home the dvd was IN and computer rebooted. Shocked

So IF they can cut power that would reboot computer and the hardware automatically pulls the disc back in.... Sneaky NK hackers. Wink
