Description Miloslav Trmač 2008-05-28 03:26:33 EDT
Description of problem:
A) An rwxrwxr-x file is "executable and world/group writable" even if the file
   is owned by a group that has the file's owner as the only member.
   e.g. /var/lib/misc/PolicyKit.reload
B) 'Symbolic link "..." points to a non-existent file" is an error.  Is the
   security risk really that severe?
   Perhaps consider at least whitelisting /lib/modules/*/{source,build} if they
   point to the "correct" locations.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Daniel Kopeček 2008-06-02 06:09:56 EDT
A) Changed to two messages. word writable - ERROR, group writable - WARNING.
B) Changed to WARNING.
Comment 2 Daniel Kopeček 2008-06-05 11:20:56 EDT
whitelist is implemented now
