Description Brian Ryner 1999-07-08 00:35:02 EDT
In order for kppp to run correctly as a user other than
root, it needs to be setuid root.  I don't know of any
security problems with doing this-- doing a 'make install'
from source makes it setuid root, and it's also that way in
the official KDE packages for RH52.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-07-08 13:11:59 EDT
KPPP has not been through a security audit.  We do not ship SUID
non-security audited programs.

You may set it SUID at your own risk.
