Has anyone had a go with/against the Asus Eee PC?
Yes. Open the file browser and get a terminal (/usr/bin/konsole will
do). Then just 'sudo su -' and you're root!
Every user gets "ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL" in sudoers, so not much of a
challenge. Haven't tried any remote exploits, but was running a
(probably customised) 2.6.16 kernel (iirc) so is vulnerable to a couple
of things off the top of my head.
