Root access on Linux systems - make sure you are patched...
Lots of geekery in this post but it describes a bug introduced about seven years ago in "polkit". Things like interrupting that process 8 milliseconds after starting it can help you get root access on MANY Linux distributions (list provided).
It has a list of SOME vulnerable distributions - what I don't see is the list where it is fixed.
