Nergal uncovers another cool 'sploit

I'm really happy to see that Rafal Wojtczuk has gotten a fair amount of press, including a mention on slashdot, for his recent disclosure of a vulnerability allowing execution of code with root privileges. It's not the first of this sort for him and hopefully not the last.

Rafal is the primary developer and maintainer of libnids, the library on which vortex is based. My only contact with Rafal was a short email thread seeking help with libnids: he was most helpful.

Go Nergal!
