Are there any security implications of having a detached tmux session with a root shell running indefinitely on a server?

@mcol besides amount of time, probably not fundamentally worse than a root shell in an attached session. Guess it requires an exploit against tmux.

@mcol although if you require password to become root then I guess accessing the tmux session is a way around knowing that password
