Description Blair Zajac 2003-10-07 15:47:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 
1.1.4322; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
It would be really useful if the RPM would create a symlink
from /bin/bash to /bin/rbash, which enables the restricted bash

I'm guessing that /etc/shells should also be updated.

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

How reproducible:

The problem is that although rbash does restrict things quite a lot, you are
still probably going to want /bin in your path -- and if it is, then you can
just run 'bash' and get out of restricted mode that way.

I think it's more useful for chroots than in the RPM we actually ship for bash.
