Re: secure file permissions
Can you tell me what are the default permissions for /etc/group and
I restricted them to rw for root only, but some things like exim (and
possibly dpkg ?) seem to need read access there too.
What's recommendet ?
(Debian Woody 3.0 r1)
$ ls -l /etc/passwd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2722 Nov 23 15:35 /etc/passwd
same for group.
Pretty much everything needs to be able to read them. There isn't any
harm in having them readable either. The encrypted passwords are stored
