    This really doesn't look like a root exploit.. This is more end user oriented...

    The article wasn't very clear about it, and the specifications of the attack...

    Most linux servers run GPG anyway....

    It's an "exploit" of an Outlook plug-in. End-user threat only, if you receive PGP signed mail via Outlook and use the PGP plug-in.
