Installing kernel-2.4.0-0.37 (i686), and possibly any other flavor of the
same version, leaves /lib/modules world-writable!
Comment 1 orders1 2000-11-18 21:47:13 EST
Same thing for any subdirectories under /lib/modules/{version}
Comment 2 orders1 2000-11-18 21:50:28 EST
Also /etc/pcmcia and /etc/pcmcia/ and subdirs
Comment 3 orders1 2000-11-18 22:15:07 EST
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-19 00:52:59 EST
