    Stephen,

    Assume a security exploit of you /bin/bash.
    The publish ATA and SCSI program codes have been defined small enough to
    push into a shellstack "memory push" buy a clever non-root user.

    NO-ROOT involved here 'users.users'

    Is this clear enough.

    Now if you want to bet you butt on your security protocols are perfect,
    GO-AWAY! Stop pumping garbage into a serious issue.
