Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 134540
mtr should be setuid root
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:14:26 EST
mtr should be setuid root like ping and traceroute. All those tools
are frequently used by normal non-root users for good reasons.
As already stated in the other bugreport, mtr won't be setuid as we
have a very strict rule for doing that to only a few programs and only
if absolutely necessary (and for good reason).
