						This module exploits a vulnerability in Viscosity 1.4.1 on Mac OS X. The
					vulnerability exists in the setuid ViscosityHelper, where an insufficient
					validation of path names allows execution of arbitrary python code as root.
					This module has been tested successfully on Viscosity 1.4.1 over Mac OS X
					10.7.5.
