In fairness, both of those flaws could be easily worked around. The worrying implication is that the developer didn't know what he was doing.

Having said that, you need to already have root access to install this, so it's really not a big deal.

There's no "exploit". The emphasized section just says the programmer was incompetent, but by chance his rootkit still (mostly) works.
Again, this is a rootkit. You need root access through some other means to install it. Still a nuisance, though.
