He, he. Strauss simply doesn't understand, or doesn't want to see, that sandboxing is one thing. However, privilege separation and design in an application is another. The former does not protect an application from getting completely owned.

The fact that you've got a systemd developer talking like this is exceptionally worrying. He also seems to think a non-privileged user being able to do a denial of service on the system is a 'trivial security problem'. Is it me or do systemd's developers not get the concept of a multi-user system or anything Unix systems have had for decades?
