InsomniaX: Security Notice

It has come to my attention that a security vulnerability has been found in InsomniaX that will allow a standard user to load code into the kernel

The same exploit may also be exploited maliciously by 3rd parties to load and exectute malicious code into the kernel without requesting administative rights of an administrator user

As this software is now abandoned and open sourced, I would recommend anyone with concerns of the security risk to uninstall InsomniaX using the uninstall intructions found at

If someone is willing to maintain the code base to resolve this issue please contact me
