Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17392
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
So let start. My name is Galin Nikolaev Kardjilov. Am I from Bulgaria and I
am 15 years old. So I am not sure if this is a bug,but it's very stupid of
your side to make it. So when Lilo says
Lilo: and you type linux single ,you acceess linux with a bash# and when
you type su, you automatically become root. It doesn't promt you for a
password. So i can do everything as root. I can change the permissions of
/etc/passwd and /etc/shadow to 777 and every user will be able to
read/write them. I can change the root password, i can add user and so on.
I suggest in the next distribution of RedHat when you go to bash# you go
with permissions 500:500 and there must have a speacial command (e.g.
svisitor) that prompts you for a special password you have already entered
at the installation. So I'd like to receive an email to understand whet
have you dicided bye.
This is a long-standing well-known LILO configuration question. Pull up the
documentation for lilo.conf and search for the RESTRICTED and PASSWORD options.
