shabbypenguin is right guys... you can't hack regular linux with this... so don't worry about it, and move on...

just be sure to reactivate your antivirus after using it.

What I don't know, is if it is exploiting a part of the kernel that is android specific, or a part that is in every linux kernel

It's busting open the adb daemon on the phone, which runs as root. It'll do nothing to a desktop linux box unless you have an ARMv7 powered desktop running an Android specific kernel :P

That makes perfect sense, thanks for the clarification (and for not being a dick about it, as is so often a problem in the Epic forums...)

As has been stated, its not a linux exploit. Its an adb exploit, quit trying to associate things and sound smarter than you are. Just because your shirt is red, and your car is red doesn't mean you can drive your shirt. what I said makes perfect sense.

That's not what the guy running the hospital morgue told me.

I changed to NIS and it doesn't say squat about it.
