Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16104
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Can suid bit on execution
can be removed from /usr/bin/suidperl
Not that many people use /usr/bin/suidperl anyway
and those who use it can do chmod u+s manually.
(like those in SUSE http://lwn.net/daily/suse-perl.php3 )
will not be an issue any more.
Removing the setuid bit would break things in a non-obvious way. It will be
broken into a subpackage and not installed by default in future releases.
