Non-Root Users can Run the /usr/sbin/setup
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:15:35 EDT
Non-Root Users can run /usr/sbin/setup. The program runs normally. When users try to change things, a whole bunch
of errors fly by and you are displayed with the main menu again. Maybe we should do a root user check to help
pervent any security exploits in the future? If nothing else, the normal users have no business being in there
Since none of the tools are setuid, there's no way this
can be used for a security exploit; the tools will
just fail in various ways.
It's certainly better for it cosmetically to just not
run if not root, though. Fixed in setuptool-1.5-1.
