    Wrong. I've seen messages on bugtraq saying it is possible to "load"
    modules into the kernel by patching /dev/kmem. Even for loading modules
    custom modules the normal way the attacker needs root priviliges (unless
    you have a world-writeable /lib/modules...). If this is the case it is
    too late anyway...
