Description Jarno Huuskonen 2001-06-14 04:18:19 EDT
Description of Problem:
The droproot patches for tcpdump and arpwatch don't have a 
setgroups(0, NULL) call so arpwatch and tcpdump keep (root's) supplemental

Updated patches are in:

Or just add setgroups(0, NULL) call before setgid().
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2001-06-18 10:19:29 EDT
will be fixed in tcpdump--3.6.2-4
