I applied this patch to fix the holes in the games:
rm -rf games
BTW, regarding RPM... not everything is installed with RPM. Or the
database may have been hacked. "find" seemed pretty safe, and it works on
all systems, not just Red Hat. The point is that you choose a file such as
/vmlinuz which presumably changed a bit after you installed the binaries.
If it has been touched (why?) then choose another or use another option of
find that specifies "last 30 days", etc...
