Sorry for the long delay. Running xfdesktop does get me a desktop but not even close to the functionality I was used to. Anyhow, this is just on my play laptop, and I don't really care enough to spend lots of time trying to fix this with a workaround. I just figured that this was a problem in the distro that perhaps should be solved before going final. Users loosing their desktops in the 'stable' seems like a sure way to get lots of complaints.

Given an on-disk /boot/vmlinuz-3.x.x, is there a way to look at the files in its RootFS, or at least list them?

A vulnerability that grants an attacker writing access to the file system of the computer and can even execute code exists in the popular wget download tool. Only the recursive mode of wget, enabled with the parameter -m, is affected according to current knowledge. The recursive mode is used to make a full copy of a HTTP or FTP server, including all resources linked on the start address (example: wget -m http://

 If wget is trying to pull a copy of the contents of a FTP server, a modified server can create a symlink to the root file system and write any content to this, provided that the rights of the user allow this. The server could place e.g. a binary on the computer and run a cron job to ensure it gets executed. The gap was discovered by Rapid7, who are also behind the Metasploit project.

 A Metasploit module exists to test for the vulnerability, which sadly means that we probably will soon see attacks against this flaw in the wild.

 Users of wget should update immediately to version 1.16, because all older versions are vulnerable to this attack.

 You can find the download links of the new versions here:

 Please make sure that no other software uses an outdated version of wget, as some software brings its own version with it.
