Just posting this not for my sake but to ask on behalf of the arch community.
Just earlier today or late yesterday a hole in the kernel was discover in ptrace. this hole can allow a user to seize root without authentication. note this hole cannot be exploited remotely (apparently).
alan cox and crew have made a patch to fix this hole. Red Hat has patched their kernel will arch do the same soon?
