hi fyodor,

here's another one for Linux systems using mr. paul vixie's crontab ... 
works not only on some redhats, but also on DLD 5.2 (a german linux 
distribution) and many others using the vixie crontab - usually gets you 
root on about 70 machines out of 100 ;)

cya,

 * I dont think too many people know that redhat uses vixie crontab.
 * I didn't find this, just exploited it.
