hmmmm, if they need to install a driver, they can always change the
root pass… :frowning:

security is not an easy thing.



I’d never thought of it that way. Reminds me of that old adage that people with garages leave 20K’s worth of car sitting outside while various items of dubious value are safely stored under lock & key.

or like my daddy used to say:

Locks are only to keep honest people out.

so, strong root passwords are only to keep folks without physical
access out.

and, encrypting /home is only to keep non-NSA (and etc) out…for
some brute-force years.
