Default CyanogenMod 11 M8- protection against towelroot?

A question:
I was reading up on the CM11 M8 here:http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...orted-devices/

One of the listed in the changelog is:
Futex: Protect against Towelroot

There is a need to protect against towelroot?

Yes because Towelroot uses an exploit. And just like Windows PC it can be used to do damage
