Justin suggested a few interesting changes.


Template: gnome-applets/cpufreq_SUID_bit
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Should cpufreq-selector run with root privileges?
 The 'cpufreq-selector' program, part of the CPU Frequency
 Scaling Monitor can be setup to use superuser privileges when
 it is run ('SUID root').
 .
 If you choose this option, any ordinary user will have the power to
 set the processor's clock frequency. However, this may also be
 potentially exploitable in security attacks.
 .
 The applet will continue to work if you choose to disable SUID for
 cpufreq-selector, but only for monitoring the CPU clock frequency. The
 applet may need to be restarted for a change to take effect.
 .
 If in doubt, accept the default of no SUID root. To change this
 setting later, run 'dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets'.
