Similar to the old SYSTEM account flaw. Where you could spawn a shell with SYSTEM privileges. Albeit without getting SYSTEM privileges.
I used to use that a lot to fix stuck services.

This makes a lot of sense. A standard star rating system like hotels though?
You'd need oversight and auditors for that and as we know organisations like that are why the brown envelope industry does so well.
The trust effectively shifts. Do you trust the organisation that gave the rating?
What is needed is a decentralised standards model based on previous issues.
Personally, I find it harder to trust companies that claim to never have been hacked vs the ones that have.
The ones that have been hacked have generally learnt important lessons (one would hope) whereas the ones with no history just havent been attacked yet or are telling porkies.
I don't think anyone doubts Geldofs achievements but people with titles can be wankers as well.
Jimmy Savile did an enormous amount for charity...please back him up too I beg of you.
I think Geldof should posthumously give his knighthood to Freddy Mercury.
