Subject: Attacks based on predictable process IDs??

Folks, does anyone know why predictable process IDs are considered harmful?

I can see that there could be the possibility of a compromise if your
cryptographic PRNGs are seeded using a process ID.

Does anyone know of any other types of attacks?

Cheers, Brett
