Description Bill Nottingham 2004-03-10 14:00:58 EST
This is a change from previous releases.

Also, when 'cat /proc/modules' is allowed, it's not that much of a
security enhancement. :)
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-18 00:02:08 EST
This is because it is a link to modprobe which normal users can not
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-18 00:40:51 EST
Normal users should be able to run modprobe, it's not like it will do
anything useful. :)
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-25 13:18:45 EST
fixed in policy-1.9-15
