I want to chime in here also, I too was unhappy that I did not know
about a local root exploit in 2.4.22 until the Debian machines were
compromised in this manner. I think a lot of people were in the same
boat (not to mention the debian folks). I watch kerneltrap, kernel
traffic, and slashdot fairly regularly for these purposes, and I did
not see anything of this sort come through, otherwise I would have
patched immediately (which is what I did last night when I received
the information).

What do you want? It was a mistake. It happens. Deal with it. If people
had realized it was an exploit it would have been dealt with
