    I honestly don't have the time to go through the archives at the moment, and
    having been busy, I could well have missed any fixes that have gone in during
    the last couple of releases, but I am 99% sure that Alan identified a couple
    of local root exploits around 2.6.0 that had been fixed in 2.4 but never
    applied to 2.6.
