Description Chris Evans 2000-06-27 18:41:15 EDT
[Note: No component for Canna, using basesystem]
Full install of BETA2
I seem to have a suid-root (and sgid IIRC) binary here:
As far as I can tell, having this binary suid-root serves no useful
purpose. This binary doesn't do anything apart from start the "cannaserver"
daemon. That should be controlled by /etc/rc.d/init.d, _NOT_ arbitrary
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-22 18:07:13 EDT
Fixed in canna-3.5b2-22.
Comment 2 Chris Evans 2001-01-02 20:42:45 EST
Reopened - in RH7.1 beta1, the binary is setuid to user bin (?!!)
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-01-11 16:03:13 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-11 16:08:48 EST
assigning to the Canna owner.h
Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2001-01-25 19:36:02 EST
Gave Canna it's own uid and gid so it can save user preferences, dics, and cache
area in it's own area.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-30 16:36:43 EDT
This is broken again in the 7.2 beta. *grumble*
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-07 00:59:23 EDT
Putting on the fairfax must-fix list.
Comment 8 Nakai 2001-08-07 17:35:38 EDT
Fixed in Canna 3.5b2-44
