No, nothing "much protection against an attacker with root access!". You can, of course, prevent that, allowing root access only locally. Have I bothered about that, no, have all Linux users done that, probably not, who knows. And damn it, if you get root locally, why not take the who damned machine, or at least the drives with you. Although I know Linux is more secure than some other solutions I am still pissed off with people who think it's all about the OS. Give me a bank, any bank, if I speak the "language", I would claim I would need less time fooling people than fucking around with bits and bytes regardless of the OS or any security ever invented. Should we not also discuss more about the "human factor" among all other security risks. Damn it, better stop here.
