chroot is not a security gate!

Happen to see a /. article about popular misconception of chroot being a security tool. I have heard a lot about chroot and how people generally use it as jail environments for security, but this article really contradicts that idea. The one who says is Alan Cox, so we need to get our eyes and ears a bit wide open 🙂
