Description Jack Tanner 2003-09-22 18:02:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
The change in bug 7511 seems to have regressed: ncpmount is not suid root (I
haven't checked the other executables mentioned in 7511). This is true for
ncpfs-2.2.1-1 (in RH 9) as well as for 2.2.3-1 (currently in Rawhide).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ncpfs-2.2.1-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date-nox ncpfs
2. ls -alF `which ncpmount`


Actual Results:  Run ncpmount from a non-root account, and get
ncpmount must be installed suid root


Expected Results:  Either ncpmount should be installed suid root, or, if that's
a security problem, it should produce an error message saying that that is a
security problem.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-10-07 14:07:13 UTC
It is indeed a security problem, closing as "NOT A BUG".
