Re: /proc filesystem allows bypassing directory permissions on LinuxFrom: psz () maths usyd edu au Date: Sat, 31 Oct 2009 06:13:52 +1100
... another solution -- allow fcntl() to remove read-only and
append-only limitations, so that behaviour is at least explicit.
Do not lower security, just to emulate /proc sloppiness. (That would be
like fixing a root security bug by doing away with the root password.)
Is there anything (currently) relying on that security?
