Description of problem:
I'm no expert on this matter so please excuse me if I'm wrong.
When you boot up and kudzu detects new, missing or changed hardware it
immediately enters a dialogue with whoever may be sat at the computer,
asking them if they want to add, remove or ignore configuration
information for that device. Shouldn't there be a password prompt
before this dialogue to prevent non root users from changing system
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug some new hardware in and reboot.
If you're in front of the computer, you can already get root.
