Description Xavier Cho 2001-11-02 01:32:53 EST
Files listed below in RedHat 7.1k distribution have write permission 
to everyone. I suppose this bug could be major security hole and should be
fixed immediately. Thanks.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 01:39:32 EST
Exactly which kernel do you have installed?
Comment 2 Xavier Cho 2001-11-02 01:43:37 EST
 I've upgraded my system to kernel 2.4.9 with up2date right 
after the installation.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 01:50:35 EST
Never mind; I see that 7.1k ships with 2.4.3-12 as the default install kernel.
Comment 4 Kwan-hong, Lee 2001-11-02 04:28:40 EST
Hm? Is there any relation that kernel and permission?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-02 10:30:06 EST
Yes.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2001-11-28 20:36:40 EST
Fixed with an updates disk for 7.1k and an updated redhat-release package which
will make the necessary changes.
