Description Josh Bressers 2005-12-02 13:09:08 EST
/dev/input/* incorrect permissions

This issue was reported to secalert by Richard Cunningham
/dev/input/* has permissions set to 644 by default.
This makes it possible for any user to sniff local user input
(password capturing being the most dangerous).

What's your plan for this?  I've not communicated this to vendor-sec yet as I
would like to know what an appropriate embargo date should be?
