D'awww, he thinks hes a big boy computer.
You are doing it right. Most people are using the newer script @ http://beta.linux-bench.com which you can use by doing (as su/ root): curl http://linux-bench.com/lb-test.sh | bash
My assumption right now is that people are running this from a LiveCD which usually has no password on the su account anyway.Patrick...
Serving it over http and having it run immediately by root seems like a security issue.
Can you change it to https and not make it available from http. That will definitely help people from getting man-in-the-middled.
