    There’s been much ado about the FUD’dy nature of the first challenge. But despite how it was presented, is not privelege escalation something worth paying attention to? Getting past the haze of ZDnet’s poorly written article, it still looks to me like there’s a security vulnerability in there. Sure, it’s nothing compared to hacking into a well closed-up box over the internet, but being able to escalate their own priveleges is still something that isn’t supposed to happen.
