vpnc-helper doesn't pass arguments
Last modified: 2008-01-30 16:38:52 EST
Description of problem:
Noticed that when I run vpnc as an ordinary user it completely ignores all
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As an ordinary user, run vpnc with some arguments
The arguments are ignored.
Adding a simple $@ to the second line of /usr/sbin/vpnc-helper fixes this. Or is
this somehow a bad idea?
Yes, this is actually very bad idea, because you can make to run any script
under root priviledges from regular user account.
