Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-05 09:58:45 EDT
To my great surprise, I discovered this morning that my /etc/shadow file was
world readable.  It didn't really matter, because i'm just on a laptop with only
one user, but I don't think I made it that way.  

I did a livecd install of slightly before test3 and have been synching with
rawhide since.

I asked a few people on IRC to check their shadow files and they were all 0400
so its probably a false alarm, and I did screw it up somehow myself.

Anyway, filing just to be on the safe side, in case there were changes recently
that might be responsible for it.

Feel free to CLOSE -> WORKSFORME if appropriate or whatever.

This probably only happens for a livecd install. I've tried it with several
normal installations here and haven't been able to reproduce it.

Maybe check with the livecd guys if they do something special for the
installation? Reassigning to LiveCD component at least for now, as thats the
only real difference i see here.

Read ya, Phil

I just did a live install of today's rawhide and it came out looking fine.  I
vaguely remember there being a problem like this at one point that we've since
fixed though, so going to close
