    Hi Frank, I hear you but I fail to see how a Xwindows set of files
not running could aid a hacker. As for the root password it should be
protected by the passwrd files.

    When school starts again I will ask the students in Computer
Engineering what they think.
 Every program might contain an error that could give a normal user the
way to get root rights. Most exploits on Linux systems are local exploits.
In special Xorg that is a mix of a lot of other programs. See an example
from today here: http://kerneltrap.org/node/7228

Cheers,
Frank
