In some instances, if dump is suid root, it can be used to gain root access. Two exploits have been published to prove this. Linux-Mandrake ships dump suid root, however both exploits do not work under Linux-Mandrake. The end result is a shell that is suid by the user attempting the exploit, and not suid root which is the intended result.
