Console-kit-daemon tracks users, sessions, and seats on the system. It allows other pieces of software to react to changes with any of that metadata.

Also, htop shows all threads by default, not just processes. That is probably a single process in multiple threads. A lot of times, this can be misleading.

You can change the settings in htop to show processes only. Other than that, you can't remove them as far as I know.

But is that thing vulnerable or any kind of bug ?
Nope - it is just a service.

I would not recommend to disable this system service because some other services do have dependencies to the console-kit-daemon.

At least nobody was asking "Hey! Do I need this system32 folder in my Windows Directory? I heard if you delete it your computer runs faster." or "I found someplace online that said if I ran 'rm -rf --no-preserve-root /' on my VPS it would run faster, so I did. Now it won't boot. What do I do???"

My question arises because i am seeing this thing for the first time, I have another vps running by 12.04 and there is no process like this , i thought this is some kind of init problem or something.
