Description Tim Pepper 2001-04-27 16:06:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686)

/etc/named.conf now contains a secret key yet the config file is installed
as world readable.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ls -l /etc/named.conf

Actual Results:  [root@tcp /etc]# ls -l named.conf 
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          781 Apr 27 13:02 named.conf

Expected Results:  [root@tcp /etc]# ls -l named.conf 
-rw-r-----    1 root     root          781 Apr 27 13:02 named.con
Comment 1 Tim Pepper 2001-04-27 16:13:02 EDT
Oh yeah...to take off the world read bit you need to 'chgrp named
/etc/named.conf' obviously.
Comment 2 Stig Hackvan 2001-07-02 15:55:21 EDT
this also applies to rndc.conf (which contains a matching copy of the key)
Comment 3 Florian La Roche 2002-04-03 08:56:07 EST
The keys are now in files only readable by root and group named, so this
should be fixed now.
